Test your smoke alarm regularly

A smoke alarm is critical for the early detection of a fire. Give yourself peace of mind this Christmas and make sure your smoke alarm works - before you have any Christmas dinner mishaps.

If you don’t have one, get one fitted.

Test your smoke alarm regularly by pressing the test button until the alarm sounds. Only remove batteries when replacing them.

Testing your smoke alarm is easy and only takes a minute or so. It is especially important to do this carefully around the holidays when you might be enjoying a few festive drinks while cooking.
