Legendary broadcaster Clive Tyldesley recorded a video for a project the station have been working on.

As we are spending more time in our homes currently, Tisbury Fire Station want us to test our smoke alarms. 

In order to encourage people to do so, they enlisted the help of the well-known football commentator

In the video, Clive tells people to protect your loved ones by doing the test, which only takes a second. 



Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service say that it's vitally important we maintain our smoke alarms, and should do the following: 

  • Test them once a week, by pressing the test button until the alarm sounds
  • Change the batteries once a year (unless mains powered or fitted with a ten year battery)
  • Replace the whole unit every ten years
  • Clean your smoke alarms every three months by using the soft brush of your vacuum cleaner to remove any excess dust

You are more than twice as likely to die in a fire at home if you haven’t got a working smoke alarm.
