Smoke alarms are only as good as the person maintaining them. Know what you need to do to make sure your smoke alarms work.

Once you have your smoke alarms fitted in your home, you need to make sure they work which should be done on a regular basis.

Smoke alarms should be tested at least monthly.

If your alarms have a 1 year battery, make sure it is changed every year & only take it out to replace it. A lot of people forget about their smoke alarms and tend to forget about testing the batteries. With this in mind, longer life batteries are a great option.

DON'T disconnect or take the battery out if it goes off by mistake.

Mains-powered alarms also need regular checks. Although they are powered by your home power supply and are installed by a qualified electrician, they still need regular testing to ensure they are working correctly.

When testing smoke alarms you're also testing the smoke sensor to ensure that is activating.

Strobe lighting & vibrating pad alarms are available for those who are deaf or hard of hearing.
