Tick Tock Test!

Before it’s too late, test your smoke alarm.

The new ‘Fire Kills’ campaign launched during the clock change weekend. Adopting the line ‘TICK, TOCK, TEST!’, the campaign encouraged people to test their smoke alarms when they change their clocks.

However it is important to regularly check your smoke alarm.  Smoke alarms save lives, but only if they work.

With 197 people dying in fires in the home last year, and over 70% not being alerted to the fire by means of a smoke alarm, it is essential that people test their smoke alarms regularly.

By pushing the ‘test’ button on every smoke alarm, you could save the lives of your nearest and dearest – children, parents and friends alike.
