Your New Year’s resolution could save your life

Firefighters across Avon Fire & Rescue Service are urging you to make a New Year’s resolution which could save your life.

Crews are reminding you to check the battery in your smoke alarm is working once a week.

Smoke alarms provide an early warning that a fire has broken out and can provide vital extra minutes to escape the property, especially at night.

Just two or three breaths of toxic smoke from a fire is enough to render you unconscious, so a working smoke alarm could save your life.
