Sign up for fire safety reminder

Have your say

THE CHAIRMAN of South Yorkshire Fire Authority is the latest dignitary to sign-up to a new smoke alarm testing reminder service.

Coun Jim Andrews, said the free service, which gives residents weekly or monthly reminders to test their smoke alarms, is vital to ensure they stay safe in the home.

Figures released by South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue show the majority of people have smoke alarms in their homes, but often they are not kept in working order.
