Check your smoke alarms
TWEED firefighters are urging people to use the end of daylight saving as a reminder to check their smoke alarms.
“When you change your clocks on Sunday just take a few minutes to test your smoke alarms and change the batteries,” Tweed Heads Station officer Chris Perrin said.
“Working smoke alarms and a home escape plan could save you, your family, pets and possessions in a fire.
“A fire can spread and engulf a home in just a few minutes.”
Mr Perrin also reminded residents it was required by law to have at least one working smoke alarm per floor, including in caravans, campervans and moveable dwellings.
“Having a smoke alarm that is not working or has a flat battery is just as bad as not having one at all.
“Don’t gamble with your family’s life by waiting to install them – do it now.”
