For Householders

Play an active role in keeping your home safe from fire.

It is essential that your home has a working smoke alarm on each level of the property. If a fire starts, this will give you and your family time to get to safety.

Doors slow down the spread of potentially deadly smoke and flames, so it is important to remember to close them at night.

Fire often starts in the kitchen and no-one should ever leave a cooker unattended while it is in use. It is also important to stay with any lit candles and make sure they are kept away from children and pets, and from curtains or other flammable materials.
