Help ensure fire safety in your home:
Check your smoke alarms are working; testing them weekly is ideal.
Don’t leave mirrors and other reflective objects next to windows where the sun, even in the autumn, is bright and strong enough to start a fire by reflecting on to fabric or paper.
If you’re lighting candles, ensure they are placed on a heat resistant surface, and never leave a burning candle unattended. Make sure they are away from any curtains, cushions, throws or other flammable material.
