It's been reported by the BBC that Firefighters are being used as Emergency Locksmiths in London at a cost to the tax payer of around £5m.
Between 2009 and 2011 the London Fire Brigade were called out to 2,287 incidents where people were locked in and 1,613 incidents where people were locked out, amongst other lock related incidents including 14 incidents where people were locked in cupboards and 1 incident where a woman managed to get stuck in a fridge.
The London Fire Brigade has spoken out about the 1000's of lock out related incidents they receive every year, saying "We get called to an absurd number of non-emergency incidents involving people who have locked themselves in or out of their homes ... locksmiths should be called unless someone's life was at risk".
Between 2009 and 2011 the fire brigade reported to have attended nearly 22,000 incidents of this type, that totals to 20 of these lock related issues each day. Perhaps the most worrying issue here is that while professional firefighters are trying to get people back into their properties it's likely to hinder their response times to a life threatening emergency.
Before calling the emergency services - think, are there any lives in danger?
- If you find yourself locked in or out in London, LockRite could be with you within the hour and unlock your door.

Having served the security needs of London residents for many years, we can safely say that there’s no one-size-fits-all home security solution which can be implemented to provide peace of mind. What works wonders for a semi-detached family home in Wapping won’t deliver the same benefits for a studio apartment in Wembley and vice versa. So, what does this mean for Londoners looking to upgrade security at home?
It simply means a security solution which meets the precise needs and requirements of that particular residence need to be created. And the best way to create a security solution is to have a security survey carried out by experienced security specialists.
LockRite can carry out a home security survey to help you understand the areas of your home most vulnerable to intrusion and the best means of securing your home. Our local locksmiths can also make sure your locks are covered by your insurer, and they can also advise you on how to make your home less of a target to thieves.
When carrying out security surveys for London residences, we often find that many people lack an understanding of home security and that many Londoners tend to overlook things that make their homes a target to thieves. These include:
It may not seem like a problem since you’re at home, but leaving valuables like your purse, wallet, phone or laptop in plain sight of your ground floor windows can serve as an invitation to thieves. Keep them out of sight and away from your windows.
In summer, many Londoners leave their windows open to catch the breeze, but what about passers-by with criminal intent? Open ground floor windows are easy intrusion points for thieves, so keep them closed if you’re not at home or in the same room.
Sadly, we’ve seen a rise in the number of break-ins that can be attributed to sharing personal information online, and not only with strangers. If you plan on sharing your travel plans online, please be careful and only share with people you know and trust.
It’s often the case that a discrete, state-of-the-art security system doesn’t deliver the same home security benefits as something as simple as a shiny new deadbolt or a ‘Beware of the Dog’ sign. Visible security measures are often the best deterrents.
Hedges and shrubs are a common sight across London. Although aesthetically pleasing, they can actually serve as hiding places for burglars. Make sure your garden doesn’t totally shield your windows and make it easy for thieves to hide.
Our local security experts can carry out a security survey at your home and advise you of the best measures to take to protect your family and possessions. If you’d like a free, no obligation home security survey quote, call 0203 292 0060.
Commercial security is an issue right across London and the surrounding areas. Whilst areas like Camden, Islington and Westminster are hit hardest by crime, even in areas with below average crime rates like Bexley, Harrow and Sutton, commercial security isn’t something that any business owner can afford to take lightly.
LockRite can supply, install and maintain a wide range of high-tech access control systems that meet all the requirements of London businesses, and we also provide a broad range of commercial locksmith and security services. These include panic bar hardware, lock changes and repairs, suited master keyed systems, locking systems and handles, armour plated glass door locks, safes, cabinet locks, till drawer locks and many more. All our services can be tailored to meet your security requirements.
Access control systems are much more secure than traditional key locks and they’re also far more accountable. With a good access control system you can identify which of your employees gained access to your business premises and at what time.
Brightly lit entrance and exit points (usually front and back doors) can serve as an excellent deterrent to thieves. When the entrance points of a business premises aren’t clearly visible, preferably from the street, they tend to appeal to thieves.
A quality CCTV system not only serves as a deterrent to thieves, it also provides evidence if your business premises is broken into. As a Yale Smart Security Partner, LockRite’s local locksmiths can supply and install Yale’s entire HD CCTV range.
Recent statistics show that 60% of burglars would be discouraged from targeting a property if they knew an alarm was installed. With or without armour plated glass door locks and a visible CCTV system, an alarm can be a highly effective deterrent.
