Preventing Fire in your Home

Oct 12, 2018

Routine Fire Safety Check should only take a couple of minutes, but it could mean the difference between Life and Death.

There are a few simple things you can do to keep you and those you love safe from fire.

  • Check your home, room by room, for fire dangers and correct them.
  • Get at least one smoke alarm for each floor in the home.
  • Have a fire escape plan, teach it to your family and practise it regularly.
  • Make sure cigarettes are stubbed out properly before going to bed.
  • Be extra careful if you have been drinking alcohol or are feeling drowsy.
  • Never smoke in bed.
  • Keep matches and lighters out of reach of young children.
  • Most people who die in fires, die from smoke inhalation and not from burns and it can take as little as 3 minutes to die from smoke inhalation.
  • Get a smoke alarm fitted and check it regularly to ensure it is in full working order.

And Finally, walk around your house with a view to keeping your home safe and secure.

  • Unplug all unnecessary electrical appliances.
  • Turn off all unnecessary gas appliances.
  • Make sure all candles and naked flames are extinguished.
  • Place a spark guard in front of an open fire.
  • Empty all ashtrays.
  • Are all escape routes completely clear of obstructions?
  • Close all doors to reduce the spread of fire and smoke.
