This week, we’re conducting fire safety week across the community. During this week we’ll be sharing top tips and advice on how to prevent fire in your home, conducting talks across your area on fire safety and carrying out checks to homes if necessary.

Check in each day for top tips on keep your home safe from fire!

Today, we’re looking at smoke alarms…

All smoke alarms are checked every 12 months and this is normally carried out with the annual gas servicing. There is a programme in place for checking smoke alarms for properties that do not have gas.

If your property does not have gas and you want to find out when your smoke alarm will be serviced, please contact us.

Looking after your smoke alarm

• Test your smoke alarm by pressing the button until the alarm sounds. Try making this part of your household routine

• Never disconnect your smoke alarm

• If your mains powered smoke alarm does not sound when you test it or it bleeps constantly or if there is any other fault, please contact us through the “Report it” tab

If you have any questions about fire safety at home, please contact us.
