The national Fire Kills campaign is reminding people of the importance of a working smoke alarm & carbon monoxide detector this month and is encouraging everyone to test theirs when they change their clocks on Sunday 30th March 2014. Listen out for advertising on national radio in the build up to the clock change weekend and look out for the chilling press adverts in national newspapers over the weekend itself. As you are four times more likely to die in a fire in the home if you do not have a working smoke alarm, HETAS is helping to promote this message to all partners and stakeholders. So, please do test your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors when you change you clocks! And, why not help out an older friend, relative or neighbour who might not be able to do so themselves?
The Fire Kills campaign also encourages people to test their smoke alarms on the first of every month with their #TimeToTest social media campaign. You can keep up to date with Fire Kills on Facebook at www.facebook.com/firekills
