Smell Smoke? Get your smoke alarm checked

A Life Saver

Is 2am, you and your family are sound asleep. One of the coals fall out of the fire place and a fire starts in the living room. What chance do you have? Who can warn you? The answer is a simple, smoke alarm.

Too often told are terrible stories about how families lost their lives because there they didn’t have a smoke alarm or it wasn’t working. Without a working smoke alarm you are:

  • 57% more likely to loss you home
  • 26% more likely to suffer serious injuries
  • Four times more likely to die

It is compulsory for every home to have a smoke alarm so why not make sure it does its job? They detect smoke well before someone who is sleeping and they provide critical seconds that are the difference between life and death.

Are you up to date?

Every house must have a smoke alarm but it is not at all useful if it doesn’t work. Many older smoke alarms are powered by batteries which means they might not be working when you need it most. The Department of Fire and Emergency Services recommend that every home should have a mains powered smoke alarm. This means that your smoke alarm would be wired to the power supply meaning at all times it is ready for the worst.

What can I do?

At least once a month test your smoke alarm by pressing the test button with a broom handle. And at least once a year you should:

  • Vacuum around your smoke alarm vents
  • Use a surface insect spray around the smoke alarm to stop insects gathering inside

These basic precautions can save you and your family’s life.
