Is it teething time for your little one?
Here are some general fire safety rules that you should be implementing in your home:
 
  • Have at least one smoke detector on each floor of your home. Check that it’s working once a week.
  • Always use a fireguard over open or electric fires and heaters, solid fuel, oil and gas stoves.
  • Put out matches completely
  • Keep matches and cigarette lights out of reach and sight of children
  • Do not overload electric sockets and repair old or worn flexes.
  • Close interior doors, so that if there is a fire, it is less likely to spread.
  • Work out a family escape plan
  • Teach your children what to do in the event of a fire or if they hear a smoke alarm
