Don’t become a victim – change your smoke alarm battery

Is your home fire safe? A new survey of Australians commissioned by Duracell has revealed that asmany as 70 per cent of parents are not planning ahead in case of fire and proactively changing their smoke alarm batteries every year. Despite the lack of fire safety practices at home, almost half of Australian parents (47 per cent) consider a house fire more scary than common phobias including poisonous snakes (18 per cent) and spiders (11 per cent), aggressive dogs (8 per cent) and sharks (7 per cent).Australia’s fire & emergency services together with long-term partner Duracell are now in their 14th year of encouraging Australians to have a working smoke alarm and a practiced home escape plan. When it comes to protecting you and your family,  smoke alarms are crucial in giving you the early warning needed to escape a fire so don’t be a fool and change your smoke alarm battery today if you haven’t changed it in the last year!

Australia’s fire & emergency services recommend using long-lasting 9V alkaline batteries, testing the smoke alarm once a month and changing the batteries each year to ensure year-round protection.

*The 2014 Duracell Fire Safety Survey - Research was conducted nationally by Galaxy Research, on behalf of Duracell, in January, 2014. A total of 1,264 parents comprising fathers and mothers with children aged 17 years or younger were surveyed.
