HO HO HO! Merry Christmas!ย 

In the light of the Christmas spirit, we wanted to share some Christmas joy and wish everyone a fantastic holiday. But we also want you to be safe, so please read through these fire safety guidelines to remember how to stay safe this Christmas!ย 

๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผ Test your smoke alarms monthly – and remember to change the batteries if you havenโ€™t for a while.

๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผ Check that your Christmas lights are compliant and carry the British Safety Standard sign! 

๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผ Never place candles near a Christmas tree or materials that are flammable. 

๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผ Do not leave your cooker unattended – keep an eye on that turkey! 

๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผ Do not cook when under the influence or sleepy. 

๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผ Always have a fire plan, and make sure to inform your guests and anyone staying with you for the holidays. 

๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผ Put out cigarettes properly and donโ€™t just throw them in a dustbin. 

๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผ Donโ€™t hang decorations on heaters or lamps/lights. 

๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผ Donโ€™t leave candles unattended or in the reach of children – hide the matches too! 

๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผ Always switch off your Christmas lights before you go to bed. 

๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผ Never overload your electrical sockets. 

๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผ Store fireworks safely and always keep a bucket of water nearby when using them. 

๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผ Be careful when around fire places and open fires. Clothing is flammable.
