Fire Safety at Christmas

Fire Safety at Christmas

With Christmas fast approaching, many of us are decorating our homes for the celebrations ahead. Christmas lights and decorations can present increased risk of fire, and should be used safely. Keep your home safe this Christmas by:  

Ensuring all festive lights conform to the relevant British Safety Standard  

Testing your smoke alarm once per month  

Keeping decorations away from lights and heaters   

Avoiding overloading sockets and ensure these are turned off prior to going to bed  

Taking care around open fireplaces  

To find out more about how to mitigate the risk of fire within your home, please review the UK Government guidance.
