Christmas is a busy time of the year and it can be easy to become complacent when it comes to fire and home safety. Fire and safety hazards can be minimised by taking some basic precautions.

Only buy festive lighting marked with a CE mark.
Switch off all festive lights when unattended.
Use only one extension cord – do not double up on extension cords.
Do not use outdoor lights indoors.
Ensure your real Christmas tree is a safe distance from any open flames and be wary of candles.
Review leads and plugs for fraying and replace if needed.
Check smoke detectors are in working order. A fire blanket is a good investment for any home.
If you are away from your home over Christmas consider a timer switch for lights and do not advertise that your home is vacant on social media. Thefts occur at Christmas time too unfortunately.

If your home is to be unoccupied for a longer period, inform your insurers, drain the water system so that freezing of pipes cannot occur and ask a friend or relation to check your home daily.

Please check on the well-being of any neighbours who are alone over the Christmas period. Stay safe and have a peaceful, relaxing and happy Christmas.
