Fire safety in the home

In 2017, 283 people died in fires in the home. You’re at least 8 times more likely to die in a fire in the home if there are no working smoke alarms.

Offer to test the smoke alarms of an older family member, neighbour or friend who needs help.

It only takes a moment to test and gives your family and people you care about a better chance of surviving a fire.

There are plenty of ways you can keep you and your family safer from the risks of fire in your home. Testing your smoke alarms every month to check they are working is one of them.
