Test it Tuesday

By 7th February 2023 News

Every year the fire and rescue service is called to over 600,000 fires which result in over 800 deaths and over 17,000 injuries. About 50,000 (140 a day) of these are in the home and kill nearly 500 and injure over 11,000, many which could have been prevented if people had an early warning and were able to get out in time. In fact you are twice as likely to die in a house fire that has no smoke alarm than a house that does.

Buying a smoke alarm could help save your home and the lives of you and your family. You also need to check it is working on a regular basis, so why not “test it on a Tuesday” It takes just a few minutes you can even do it whilst you’re waiting for the kettle to boil for a cuppa.
