DO YOU HAVE A WALSALL COUNCIL COMMUNITY ALARM?
Walsall Council has confirmed that their community alarm service will cease to operate on Monday 11th February. At that time, all Walsall Council Community Alarm user’s alarms will no longer be linked to a 24/7 response centre. When an alarm is activated after Monday 11th February, it will go unanswered.
Walsall Council has confirmed that user’s are responsible for finding an alternative community alarm provider in the private market. They have also confirmed that the Walsall Council provided alarm equipment can be transferred to your new alarm provider, if possible.

Transfer Process – 3 Easy Steps
The transfer to SureSafe could not be any easier. All you need to do is follow these 3 easy steps:
|Step 1:||Complete a one-page User Form providing important information e.g. name, address, medical conditions, nominated contacts, etc.|
We need a minimum of 2 local nominated contacts, or 1 local nominated contact and there being a key safe located at the user’s home (we can supply key safes if you need one).
|Step 2:||We will call you and reprogram your existing equipment over the phone. We will then ask you to test the alarm so you are confident your alarm is working correctly and linked to SureSafe.|
|Step 3:||Continue to live independently in your own home, safer and for longer!|
There are a few important points we want to draw your attention to as you make your decision to transfer your service to SureSafe:
- Don’t wait, transfer now! Each transfer takes time. There are 7,000 Walsall residents in the process of finding new alarm providers. Don’t wait until the last minute to arrange your transfer to SureSafe, we are transferring people on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. We cannot guarantee that you will have continuous service after Walsall Council discontinues service on February 11th 2019 if you do not contact us quickly.
- To help here, you will not pay anything if you transfer earlier than when the Walsall service ends on 11th February 2019. All payments will commence February 11th onwards.
- We will give you one month free service when you complete your order, new user form and direct debit (where applicable) either online or by email. You will not be eligible for a free month’s service if you provide any information by phone.
- We will maintain in good working order any Tunstall Vi alarm base units and Tunstall myAmie pendants/wrist buttons under this agreement. This maintenance will be at no cost to you, for as long as you retain our services. There will be additional charges for any maintenance, and battery replacements, for additional equipment e.g. fall detectors, smoke alarms, CO2 detectors, flood detectors, etc.
All equipment must be returned to SureSafe should you cancel service.
