ANOTHER TIP FOR UK RENTERS – “PRESS TO TEST, MONTHLY IS BEST”
Any smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms at your property need to be kept in good working order.
Follow these steps:
- Test the alarms regularly to make sure they’re working. If they’re not working, make an emergency report to the landlord/agent immediately.
We’re supporting the Fire Kills campaign – “press to test, monthly is best” #FireKills #PressToTest
Remember this quote from Fire Kills: “You test me, you check, I’m alive. I see smoke, I keep you alive. Do we have a deal?”
- Make sure you replace batteries regularly
- Make sure you never block any air vents
- Keep the alarms free from dust and any other obstructions
If you suspect that anything is a fire risk you must let your landlord know immediately.
