Devon and Somerset Fire chiefs in smoke alarm check plea
8:00pm Friday 25th October 2013 in News
PEOPLE are being reminded to test their smoke alarms at the same time as they set their clocks back this weekend.
The clocks go back by one hour on Sunday (October 27) – giving everyone an extra hour in bed – and fire chiefs are using the occasion to make the safety call.
Alan Coxon, safety chief at Devon and Somerset Fire Service, said: “Everyone soon notices when a clock stops ticking but it’s not so easy to be sure that your smoke alarm is still in working order.
“By pushing the test button on every smoke alarm you could save the lives of your nearest and dearest.”
