Shine a light on dark nights
Research shows that when the clocks go back, burglaries spike by 38%. Carefully secure your home and outdoor space.
Protect yourself from fire
36% of fire-related fatalities occur when there is no alarm present in the building. Equip your home so you're always protected.
Alarmed & ready
A smoke alarm should be fitted to each level of your home to maximise warning. Smart alarms are great as they send alerts to your phone and allow you to silence them when it's a false alarm. Some also double as a carbon monoxide alarm.
Guard yourself from gas
Carbon monoxide has no smell or taste, so an alarm is vital. Position it near any of the following:
- Boiler/water heater
- Gas/open fire
- Central heating system
Take extra precautions
