Test smoke alarm, urges fire chief

FIRE chiefs are urging people to make a potentially life-saving move by taking a moment to test their smoke alarms.

The message follows the clocks going back an hour last weekend.

Assistant Chief Fire Officer Craig McIntosh said: “Everyone soon notices when a clock stops ticking but it’s more difficult to be sure that your smoke alarm is still in working order.

“The only way to make sure is through regular testing.”
