Did you know that April 1st is the day designated by the Department of Fire & Emergency Services (DFES) to check and replace Smoke Alarm Batteries?
When a house fire starts, only working Smoke Alarms can provide the critical early warning needed to save lives and minimise damage.
Taking the time to check and maintain your Smoke Alarms is the best way to prevent fires in your home and DFES recommends setting a reminder on April 1st to check your smoke detector and replace batteries at this time of year using a high quality long-life battery.
For households without Smoke Alarms or who are open to upgrading to the best in home fire security we recommend installing a 240-volt mains-powered photo-electric smoke alarm.
Smoke Alarms should be located in all sleeping areas and all paths of travel between sleeping areas and exits to open air.
All Smoke Alarms have a maximum service life of ten years and need to be replaced. Do you know when your smoke alarm was installed?
For assistance with Smoke Alarms this April 1st and beyond don’t hesitate to call us at SMS Security. We can install Mains Powered Smoke Alarms, replace Smoke Alarm Batteries and even arrange off-site Smoke Alarm Monitoring in conjunction with your Security Alarm.
