Smoke alarms save lives

You are personally responsible for making sure there is a working smoke alarm fitted in your home

  • Test the batteries every week, change them every year and never remove them.
  • Your local fire and rescue service will be able to check your home for fire risks, and may install a smoke alarm for you. You can find the number for your nearest fire station in the local phone book, or on this website in the Your area section.
