Get spring off to a good start

A sleeping child surrounded by smoke from a fire.The clocks going forward on the 29 March signals the start of British summer time.

There is no better time to check your smoke alarms at the same time as setting your clocks.

It takes just a minute to maintain this small item, but a working smoke alarm could save you and your family’s lives:

• get into the Test it Tuesday routine and test your smoke alarm once a week by pressing the test button until the alarm sounds.

• twice a year open the case and gently vacuum the inside to remove dust from the sensor. If it doesn't open, vacuum through the holes.

• if the alarm ever starts to 'beep' regularly, replace the battery as soon as possible.

It’s also a perfect opportunity to test the smoke alarm for older relatives, friends or neighbours who might find it hard to reach their alarms.
