Fire Rescue Victoria

Only working smoke alarms save lives.

Fires are fast. A small fire can spread to an entire room in minutes.

Without a smoke alarm a fire is more likely to damage or destroy your property. It is also more likely to cause serious injury or death.

When you are asleep you lose your sense of smell. A working smoke alarm will wake you if there is smoke.

You can learn more through our smoke alarms brochure.
