Research has shown that you are 4 times more likely to die in a house fire if you do not have a working smoke alarm?
We’ve put together some top tips to help keep you and your family safe.
- Test your smoke alarms regularly. A faulty smoke alarm is as good as no smoke alarm!
Why not set a monthly reminder on your phone. Test Your Smoke Alarm – It could save your life!
- Ensure you have a minimum of 1 smoke alarms on each level of your property.
- Plan an escape route for your entire family. Knowing which exit to take in the event of a fire will give you valuable seconds to get out.
- Never leave cooking unattended in the kitchen.
- Never overload plug sockets. You may not realise that even if you only use the allocated amount of sockets on a extension lead, you could still be overloading that socket.
Is your extension lead overloaded? Use the socket overload calculator below to find out.
