Warning as clocks go back
5:00pm Friday 26th October 2012 in News
AS the clocks go back an hour on Sunday morning, fire chiefs are urging householders to check their smoke alarms at the same time.
Cheshire Fire have joined forces with Fire Kills to mark the end of British summer time with a hard-hitting smoke alarm campaign.
Mark Cashin, deputy chief fire officer, said: "Smoke alarms have been responsible for detecting thousands of house fires but many of the deaths which continue to occur could be avoided if smoke alarms are looked after.
“The one sombre message I would leave you with is dead batteries can be replaced, dead families can not.”
