Marlborough Kaikoura Fire and Emergency Bulletin

Home

Don't Assume Your Smoke Alarms are Working

Daylight saving starts when clocks go forward by 1 hour at 2am on 27 September 2020 and this is a timely reminder to check your smoke alarms.

As we know, working smoke alarms give people an early alert to fire in their home, and that early alert gives them the best chance of escaping alive.

  • Fire moves incredibly fast – a house fire can kill you in less than three minutes. Keep your smoke alarms in working order by pressing the button to check.
  • Smoke alarms cannot detect smoke through a closed door. We recommend installing a smoke alarm in every bedroom, hallway and living area.
  • Wherever possible, we recommend hard-wired and interconnected smoke alarms are installed.  For more information visit: https://fireandemergency.nz/at-home/smoke-alarms/
  • It is also important you check the expiry date on your smoke alarms. This is usually located on the bottom or side of the alarm.
  • Keep an eye on your elderly relatives, friends and neighbours too. Are they as safe from fire as they could be?  
  • Make a household escape plan so you can get out safely during a fire. For more information visit: www.escapemyhouse.co.nz
