Change. Your. Smoke. Alarm. Batteries.
With Daylight Savings ending this weekend, remember to change the batteries in your smoke alarms.
Let us be clear here. WORKING SMOKE ALARMS SAVE LIVES.
If a fire occurs in your home and you don’t have a working smoke alarm, you are:
- 26% more likely to suffer a serous injury
- 57% more likely to experience property damage and/or loss
- 4 times more likely to die
So remember, when the clocks change, change your smoke alarm batteries.
Unlike our meme, this is a very serious matter. For further information, visit https://www.cfa.vic.gov.au/plan-prepare/smoke-alarms
