Stay safe this Christmas

 

 

This Christmas will be like no other. We’re going to be spending a lot more time at home, so make sure your place is safe with these nine tips from our safety team:

  1. There’s an increased risk of fire in the home at Christmas time, so check your smoke alarms are working. It’s a good idea to test your smoke alarms weekly. Working smoke alarms save lives.

  2. If you do have anyone staying for the festive period, do they know what to do in an emergency? Tell them your escape plan.

  3. Check that your escape route is clear of anything that someone could trip over in an emergency. Make sure your door and any window keys are in the right place.

  4. Before you go to bed, remember to switch off and unplug electrical items - including all those extra Christmas lights – and close your doors.

  5. Check that your Christmas tree lights are all working and aren’t damaged. Never overload electrical sockets.

  6. Never put candles in, or by a Christmas tree. Put out any candles before you leave a room and before you go to bed. Keep matches, lighters and candles where children can’t see or reach them.

  7. Take care to keep ribbons, decorations made of tissue paper or cardboard, and greetings cards away from heaters, lights, fireplaces and candles.

  8. Did you know 60% of all fires start in the kitchen? Don’t get distracted while cooking - take pans off the heat or turn the heat down if you’re called away from the cooker.

  9. If you’re planning to use fireworks, read the instructions and follow the firework code.

Most importantly, enjoy this very unusual Christmas and stay safe!
