@Eva888 The fire service have put Ads on TV about that service for many many years this is nothing new
It’s new to me and I imagine for a lot of people. In any case...it’s a good safety reminder and that’s why I’m sharing the information.
It's new to me too, but now I think about it I do actually vaguely remember my mum getting exactly this done about 10 years ago - Fire Service came around, looked at the smoke alarms, recommended some changes, and helped devise some emergency plans.
I'm going to arrange for this to be done at my place (as well as a couple of neighbours) when I'm back in Auckland. Strongly encouraged, it's 15 minutes' work that could save you and your family.
