Remember to Change Your Smoke Alarm Batteries #TESTITUESDAY

Please make sure you get this done! Changing the batteries in our smoke alarms and carbon monoxide (CO) detectors. By Alarm Maintenance - Fire Alarm Systems Cambridge.

Smoke alarms provide necessary and sufficient warning for us to act in a fire. There were 140 fire fatalities in England in the six months from April to September 2013.

You should have working smoke alarms on every level of your home, inside and outside sleeping areas. Purchase fire extinguishers for your kitchen, work areas, and garage. Check them every few months to remind yourself of where they are, and make sure they are properly charged. Please test!!

Alarm Maintenance are active promoters of #TESTITTUESDAY on Twitter and Google Plus.

  • Replace smoke alarms every 10 years and carbon monoxide detectors every five years.
