Fire safety in the home: Fire Kills

Test your smoke alarms monthly. Last year over 200 people died in fires in the home. You’re at least 4 times more likely to die in a fire in the home if there’s no working smoke alarm.

When you test your smoke alarms, you could test the smoke alarms of an older family member, neighbour or friend who needs help. It only takes a moment and gives your family and people you care about a better chance of surviving a fire.
