Many home fires are caused by people living in them. So we need to work together to help prevent fires, fire safety is everyone’s responsibility and we all need to do our bit to help prevent fires and to make sure that everyone knows how to stay safe if a fire starts in your building.
How we ensure your safety
How you can help us
Please make sure that you read the fire safety procedures for your house, flat or maisonette carefully – which you’ll find in your sign-up pack. Take some time also to read the information we send to you about fire safety in your home and how you can make your home as 'fire safe' as possible – and let us know if you spot any fire hazards.
Test your smoke alarms
People are at least four times likely to die in a fire in the home if there's no working smoke alarm. It's important to test them every month to make sure they're in good working condition, if your alarms beep on a regular basis, change the battery immediately - see the video below showing you how to do this.
