A fire can start in any room

Posted on 19 February 2020

Did you know that you should test your smoke alarms at least once a month? Do you have a working smoke alarm on every floor of your home?

We’re supporting the Home Office’s Fire Kills campaign to raise awareness of everyday fire risks and promote fire safety around the home. 

Liz Oliver, Compliance Director for Hyde said: “You are around 8 times more likely to die in the home if there are no working smoke alarms.  It’s important that you maintain and test yours regularly – we recommend getting in the habit of doing this once a week”.  

Your local fire and rescue service can carry out a free home visit to make sure your home is fire safe. Find out how to arrange a visit.  

If you have a relative or neighbour who would struggle to react to a fire in their home, you can help them prepare. Find out how you can help them
