Smoke alarm testing and escape planning

Our 'Smoke alarm testing and escape planning' campaign has important messages for residents in Greater Manchester, to help keep them safe from fire in the home. The campaign will run on social media, from 13 June 2022.

The key messages for the campaign are:

  • Ensure you have at least one working smoke alarm fitted, on every level of your home, which you test weekly.
  • Ensure you have an escape plan, in case of fire, which your whole household understands.
  • If there is a fire in your home - get out, stay out, call 999.
