Bedtime safety check

Making a bedtime safety check can help prevent a fire in your home

You can reduce the risk of a fire in your home by remembering to do a simple bedtime safety check.

Make sure:

  • A smoke alarm is fitted on every level of the property.
  • Internal doors are closed - in the event of a fire, this can help prevent flames and smoke spreading to other rooms.
  • All unused electrical equipment (TVs, games consoles, laptops, smartphones - anything that uses a mains or USB charger) is unplugged.
  • Any cigarettes or other smoking material is properly put out.
  • Portable heaters or electric blankets are switched off.
  • Ovens, grills and hobs are switched off.
