Fire safety and prevention
Fire can kill. It can also destroy or damage your home. There are some simple things you can do to prevent a fire from starting.
Keeping you safe
One of the easiest ways to prevent a fire is to follow the ‘STOP Fire’ message:
- S – smoke alarms - make sure you have smoke alarms on every floor of your home
- T – test those smoke alarms weekly to make sure they’re working
- O – obvious dangers - be aware of obvious dangers in your home
- P – plan your escape route should a fire start
Home fire safety check
