QUEENS­LAND Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice is re­mind­ing res­i­dents to change their smoke alarm on April Fool’s Day, as part of the an­nual ‘Don’t be a Fool’ cam­paign. April 1 is an easy date to re­mem­ber to take pre­ven­ta­tives like chang­ing their smoke alarm bat­ter­ies. In 2012, QFRS at­tended 57 res­i­den­tial fires where smoke alarms failed to op­er­ate, 11 lives were lost in Queens­land as re­sult, with 51 the year be­fore.
