Test your smoke alarms every month to check they are working. In 2015, over 200 people died in fires in the home and you’re at least 7 times more likely to die in a fire in the home if there are no working smoke alarms.
Offer to test the smoke alarms of an older family member, neighbour or friend who needs help.
It only takes a moment to test and gives your family and people you care about a better chance of surviving a fire.
