Smoke alarms

Wake up! Get a smoke alarm!


smoke_alarmA smoke alarm can give you those precious few minutes of warning which could help you and your family to get out safely if a fire broke out in your home. They can cost less than £10 and are simple to install.

You should fit a smoke alarm on each level of your home and test the battery at least once a week, by pressing the test button until the alarm sounds.

Remember to replace the batteries in your smoke alarms every year (unless you have 10 year alarms).
