UK Home Safety Week

We are promoting the importance of having working smoke alarms in your home during UK Home Safety Week (24th- 30th March).

We recommend that you should have a smoke alarm on each level of your home and that you should make testing your smoke alarm part of your weekly routine.

How will you remember?

There are a number of ways that could help you remember to test your smoke alarm but perhaps the best way would be to subscribe to our email updates below. If you subscribe you will then receive a weekly reminder email to test your smoke alarm and if you wish you will receive updates from the service with useful information.

Alternatively why not set a reminder on your phone, test it when you watch your favourite TV programme or when you put the bin out.

Just make sure that you check it bleeps every week!
