Scottish Fire & Rescue Safety Campaign
Here some safety points to keep all members of our communities safe.
• It is important to keep lit candles away from children and pets, and from curtains or other flammable materials.
• Doors slow down the spread of potentially deadly smoke and flames, so it is important to remember to close them at night.
• Check your electric equipment’s, plugs and flexes regularly for damage. If you’re in any doubt, Do Not use them until repaired by a qualified electrician.
• Keep portable heaters away from curtains and furniture and never use them for drying clothes, switching them off before you go to bed.
• Leaving cookers unattended or being distracted while cooking is the most frequent cause of fire in the home. Never cook hot food while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
• Most fatal fires are caused by smoker's materials. Don’t smoke in your chair or if you’ve been drinking or you’re feeling tired. If you do feel tired smoke outside or stand up and smoke at a window or outside door.
• It is essential that your home has a working smoke alarm on each level of the property. If a fire starts, this will give you and your family time to get to safety. Check your smoke, heat and Carbon Monoxide alarms are working weekly and replace batteries if necessary.
• As part of our commitment to building a safer Scotland the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service offers everyone in Scotland a free home fire safety visit. We can also fit smoke alarms free of charge if your home requires them. Please get in touch with us if you would like to book a visit for yourself or someone you care for. Don’t become a victim of fire.
