If a fire breaks out in your home, get out, stay out and call 999.

Most fires in the home can be prevented by taking some basic precautions:

Make sure you have smoke alarms on at least every level of your home
Test your smoke alarms regularly
Stub cigarettes out properly and dispose of them carefully
Plan your escape route and make sure everyone knows how to get out in a fire
Take extra care in the kitchen never leave cooking unattended
Do not overload electrical sockets and watch out for faulty and over-heating electrical equipment and wiring/cables.
