Many fires start at night. Make sure you have a night time fire safety routines to help keep you and your family safe:
- Switch off and unplug all electrical appliances not designed to stay on.
- Before emptying ashtrays, make sure the contents are cold.
- Check soft furnishings where people have been smoking.
- Switch off portable heaters.
- Fit a spark guard to open hearth fires.
- Close the doors of all rooms.
- Check that keys to doors and window locks are easily available.
