Do you have a smoke alarm on every level?

Fit smoke alarms image Smoke alarms can mean the difference between life and death. Make sure you give yourself the best protection possible by installing smoke alarms on every level of your home.

Last year, the main reason why battery operated smoke alarms failed to operate was because the fire did not reach the detector. Having one smoke alarm is simply not sufficient if you live in a property with more than one floor. At the very minimum, you should install one on every floor of your house. If possible, install smoke alarms in every room except the bathroom. 

Missing or flat batteries could also cost you that vital escape time so don’t forget to test your smoke alarm regularly to ensure it’s in working order. Keep an eye on older smoke alarms too as they need replacing every ten years.

We provide free home fire safety checks in the Herefordshire & Worcestershire area. Please call 0800 032 1155 if you would like to arrange a visit.
