Fire kills. Check your home and make sure that it is fire safe. Pay particular attention to your kitchen: two thirds of fires happen due to cooking.
Local fire safety officers can provide you with free advice about staying safe in your home.
If you live in a block of flats please read this leaflet about fire safety when your home shares access with other homes.
In case of fire
- Remain calm
- Get out as quickly as possible, closing all doors to prevent the spread of fire
- Call 999
- If you are trapped:
- Close the door of the room you are in
- Seal any gaps under the door with a towel or clothes
- Shout for help
