Australian singer Dannii Minogue is backing a fire safety campaign by urging fans to check their smoke alarm on a regular basis.

The Put The Needle On It hitmaker has encouraged her followers to use the onset of British Summertime on Saturday (30Mar13), when clocks moved forward across the nation by an hour, as an opportunity to check alarms are working correctly.

In a post on her official blog she shared a poignant Public Service Announcement from the U.K.'s Home Office for Fire Safety and wrote, "Don't lose more than an hour's sleep this weekend... When you put your clocks forward Saturday night use it, not just as an opportunity to welcome British Summertime, but as a reminder to test the smoke alarms in your home."
