Smoke detectors in your flat or apartment will provide you and your family with much benefit in an emergency situation most importantly more time.

Early detection and warning gives you and your family time to evacuate, before the smoke or flames would normally be smelt.

A smoke detector can increase your chances of survival and decrease risk of casualties – You must ensure it is regularly tested and replace any dead batteries.
