SHEFFIELD’S Lord Mayor is backing a new fire service campaign to get residents to test their smoke alarms.

Firefighters have been to more than 100 house fires in South Yorkshire in the last three years where alarms had been removed or batteries were either missing or flat.

The Lord Mayor John Campbell, is calling on residents to sign up at www.pressthebutton.co.uk and emails or tweets will be sent to remind householders to check alarms.

“Smoke alarms save lives, but only if the batteries are in and working,” he said.
