Most fires in the home start accidentally and the effects can be devastating
It’s important that you know how to reduce the chances of a fire starting in your home and keep yourself, your family and your property safe from fire.
Don’t forget, if there is a fire inside your home – get out, stay out and call 999 – don’t try to tackle the fire yourself.
Our two-page A5 Home Fire Safety Guide provides helpful advice, at a glance, on issues including smoke detection, living in purpose-built blocks of flats and smoking.
Know the Plan
If you live in a purpose-built flat or maisonette and there is a fire elsewhere in your building but not inside your flat, it may be safer to stay put. Make sure you know your fire plan.
