Fire safety in the home

Portable heaters

Secure heaters against a wall to stop them falling over, or fit wall-mounted heaters.

Keep heaters well away from clothes, curtains and furniture and never use them for drying clothes. Always sit at least one metre away from a heater as it could set light to your clothes or chair.

Before moving your heater, turn it off and allow it to cool first.

Do not use gas heaters indoors.
