Smoke alarm tips

We’ve put together our main tips for you on fire alarm battery day to help you keep your home safe and think about what you should consider when it comes to smoke alarms.

Our simple top tips

  • If you have a detector with replaceable batteries, make sure you change the batteries twice a year.
  • Test your smoke alarms on a weekly basis to ensure they’re working.
  • Make sure your smoke alarms are far away enough from kitchens and bathrooms so that steam cannot damage or trigger them by mistake.
