Working smoke alarms provide vital early warning in the event of a fire. Smoke alarms are essential to wake people if a fire breaks out as when people are asleep they can’t smell smoke. They give occupants early warning and time to evacuate safely.
A good time to remember to change your smoke alarm batteries is when you change your clocks twice a year, being when daylight saving time begins and ends. Daylight savings ends on Sunday the 7th April 2017 this year so get up on those step ladders and change the battery in your smoke alarm.
