British Summer Time is coming!
Cheshire residents are being urged to check their smoke alarms as they prepare to turn the clocks forward on Sunday 27th March 2016.
Smoke alarms have been responsible for detecting many of the 60,000 house fires that we are called out to each year. Many of the deaths that occur each year could be avoided if you look after your smoke alarm.
Recently there has been a 30% increase in cases where a smoke alarm didn't work because the battery was disconnected, missing or needed replacing.
Smoke alarms are cheap, at less than £5, and available in DIY stores and at many supermarkets. Always make sure that they meet the British Standard 5446 Part 1, have a 'KITEMARK' and that they are fitted in accordance with the instructions provided.
Book a home safety check
Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service will conduct a free home safety check of homes in Cheshire.
If you live in Cheshire, you can arrange for a Firefighter or a Community Safety Advocate to visit your home.
During the visit advice will be given on how to make your home safer, what to do in the event of a fire and what to do if you are trapped by a fire.
Free smoke alarms will also be fitted (if needed) with an explanation on how to maintain it correctly.
