Smoke alarms are a bedroom essential
FRV recommends installing smoke alarms in all bedrooms. You lose your sense of smell when you are asleep, so if you don’t have a working smoke alarm in your room and your door is closed, you may not be alerted and wake up in time to escape safely.
Smoking is a leading cause of house fire deaths in Australia, with many fires starting due to unsafe smoking behaviours. If you are a smoker, Victorian fire services recommend you take the below actions to minimise your risk of starting a house fire.
