Dublin Fire Brigade video shows danger of not having smoke alarm in home

Dublin Fire Brigade has urged the public on a staycation or at home, to install and check their smoke alarm is working properly and also plan a fire escape route. A video released today shows the danger of not having a working smoke alarm. In the clip, featuring a controlled fire, the alarm would have sounded after about 15 seconds, and earlier in the living area. However, without alarm, the fire and smoke are allowed to spread without adequate warning which can seriously hamper escape.
