Fire safety in the home

Candles and naked flames

  • Make sure you put out any candles, incense and oil burners when you leave the room and especially before bed
  • These items should always be held firmly in heat resistant holders and placed on a stable surface. Keep them away from materials that may catch fire such as curtains, furniture, clothes
  • Tea lights get very hot and without proper holders can melt through plastic surfaces like a TV or bath
  • To avoid accidents keep candles and other naked flames out of reach of children and pets.
