Tuesday = Test your smoke alarm

The most important safety addition to any house is a smoke alarm. Cheap and easy to install, this can give us important time if a fire occurs. Fires spread in minutes, each second counts.

Regular testing is necessary but often forgotten. This the reason that the campaign “Test It Tuesday” started, to encourage regular checks. It takes less than 2 minutes to press the alarm and make sure all is ok. It is important that we also help others who can’t reach their alarms such as elderly family members or neighbours.

Teach your kids about the importance of home safety, it is a vital lesson which should become part of the day to day routine. Prevention first!
