 Smoke Alarms

Smoke alarms are essential items! They can help give you and your family a few minutes warning if a fire breaks out in your home. You should fit smoke alarms on every level of your home and test them regularly by pressing the test button until the alarm sounds.

Electrical Items

If you’re working from home take care with laptops and chargers. Don’t overload sockets, make sure you use laptops on hard surfaces so they don’t overheat and unplug mobile and tablet chargers when you’ve finished using them.

Cooking

With everyone being at home there may be more distractions when you’re trying to cook. Don’t leave pans or grills unattended and keep an eye on children if they are helping out in the kitchen.

Garden Bonfires

You might be tempted to have a garden bonfire especially with local household recycling centres being shut. Please think carefully before you do, with more people being at home your smoke could cause an issue for neighbours, make sure you don’t have fires close to trees, hedges, fences or sheds and don’t have them on windy days when the fire could spread more easily.
