Fire Safety in the Home

Blackpool Coastal Housing

Most fires in the home start accidentally and the consequences can be devastating. Lancashire Fire and Rescue's safety advice can help keep you safe from fire at home...

  • Make sure that you have at least one working smoke alarm in your property and check it regularly to ensure it is still working properly.
  • Know your escape route/plan should a fire occur. You never know when a fire might accidentally break out.
  • Never leave cooking unattended - take pans off the hob if you get distracted or called away.
  • Put cigarettes out carefully before going to bed and don't smoke in bed.
  • Keep candles away from items that could catch fire and be sure to blow them out before going to bed or leaving your home.
  • Don't overload extension leads or adapters and check wires to ensure they're in good working order.

In the event of a fire, get out, stay out and call 999
