Fire safety in the home: Fire Kills

On the first of every month, test your smoke alarms

Last year over 200 people died in fires in the home. You are 4 times more likely to die in a fire in the home if there is no working smoke alarm.

When you test your smoke alarms you could help test the fire alarm of an older family member, neighbour or friend. It takes no time at all and gives you and your family a much better chance of surviving a fire.

First of the month – Time To Test.
