Fire Prevention Day 4
Today's information will be focused on smoke alarms and the importance of these in your home.
Approximately three of every five deaths that resulted from house fires were in homes with either no smoke alarms (approximately 40%), or in homes where the smoke alarms were not properly working (approximately 17%).
Of the 17% that the smoke alarms were not working, approximately 43% of the smoke alarms were either missing batteries or had been disconnected. 25% of the 17% contained batteries that were dead.
It is recommended that you change the batteries in all smoke detectors at the same time that you change your clocks. Take a look at the picture below for more tips.
Go through your house and check all the dates of your smoke detector.
