Attention Home Owners: Have you had your smoke alarms tested recently? Smoke alarm testing and replacement should be done by a licensed electrician regularly!
Smoke alarms have a real impact on the safety of you and your family in the case of a fire. According to the Melbourne Fire Brigade, if you don’t have a working smoke alarm installed in your home, and a fire occurs, you are:
- 57 per cent more likely to suffer property loss and damage
- 26 per cent more likely to suffer serious injuries
- Four times more likely to die
If your smoke alarm keeps going off or beeping for no reason, it could be faulty. Try changing the batteries yourself and make sure you have an electrician test and replace any faulty smoke alarms.
