Information sent on behalf of Fire & Rescue Service

Home safety week 30th Sept to 6th October

There are a number of other smoke alarm messages that sit alongside testing: 
  • The easiest way to protect your home and family from fire is with working smoke alarms - get them, install them, test them. They could save your life.
  • Fit at least one on every level of your home and test them monthly.
  • Ten-year sealed battery smoke alarms are the best option.  They are slightly more expensive, but you save on the cost of replacing batteries. 
  • If it is a ten-year alarm, you will need to replace the whole alarm every ten years.
  • Never disconnect your alarms or take the batteries out if it goes off by mistake
  • The ideal position to install an alarm is on the ceiling in the middle of a room and on the hallway and landing so you can hear an alarm throughout your home.
  • Don’t put alarms in or near kitchens or bathrooms where smoke or steam can set them off by accident.
  • If it is difficult for you to fit smoke alarms yourself, contact your local fire and rescue service for help.
