Don’t forget to put your clock forward on Sunday

Published on: Thursday, 27-March-2014

Residents are reminded to put their clock forward on Sunday, 30 March. Remember to also test your smoke alarms at the same time – this really is a simple quick check that is a life saver.

Sadly more than half the 211 people who died in accidental fires in the home last year were aged 65 or over. Testing for an older family member, neighbour or friend who finds their smoke alarms difficult to reach could give them those vital extra seconds to escape when it really matters.
