If Bedfordshire Fire and Rescue Service provided you with a free smoke alarm in the past and it is chirping, signalling a low battery, you should contact the manufacturer FireAngel:

Telephone: 0800 141 2561 between 8.30am and 5.30pm Monday to Friday.

Textphone: 18001 0800 141 2561

Email: Technicalsupport@fireangeltech.com

Facebook: FireAngel

FireAngel may ask for the model, batch number and replacement date of the alarm, which can be found on the underside of it. Carefully twist the alarm off of the ceiling to locate this information.

FireAngel will be able to assist you in solving your problem.
