John McAleer on... Fire Safety.

Well, that's mine done.

What am I talking about ?

Every year, on New Year's day, I replace the batteries in my smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. It doesn't matter if they are battery powered or mains powered, you should replace the batteries proactively, so that you know they will work if you need them to.

Don't wait for the annoying beep at 3 o'clock in the morning, why does that always happen at 3 o'clock in the morning ? 🤔

It doesn't have to be on New Year's day, that's just the date I've picked, but choose a date in the year, it may be a birthday or anniversary, it doesn't matter, as long as it is a date you will remember.

Smoke detectors should be replaced at 10 years old, if you can't remember how old your detectors are, or if you inherited the detectors, and there is no indication of age on the units, change them.
