Tips

  Fit smoke alarms on each level in your home
  Test the batteries in your smoke alarm every week and change them every year - never remove them at any other time
  Avoid leaving children in the kitchen alone when cooking - keep matches and saucepan handles out of their reach
  Take care when cooking with hot oil - it can catch fire easily
  Don't overload electrical sockets - try and keep to one plug per socket
  Stub cigarettes out properly and dispose of them carefully
  Be careful with candles and make sure they are secured in a proper holder and away from materials that may catch fire - like curtains
  Be prepared by making a plan of escape
  Don't tackle a fire yourself: leave it to the professionals - get out, stay out and call 990
 

Cigarettes – put them out, right out  

More people die in fires caused by smoking products than in fires caused by anything else
   
Always stub cigarettes out properly and dispose of them carefully
