A great reminder from our friends at Fire and Emergency NZ to make sure you check your batteries in your smoke alarms and do you have enough smoke alarms for your house ???🤔🤔 How many smoke alarms do I need? 🤔🤔

You may have checked your smoke alarms this daylight saving, but do you know how many you should have in your house? 🏠

Smoke alarms cannot detect smoke through a closed door. Fire and Emergency recommends installing a smoke alarm in every bedroom, hallway and living area. 👍

e.g. This 3 bedroom house has 5 smoke alarms: 1 in each bedroom, 1 in the hallway and 1 in the living area.
