Celebrating Safely

Whether you're celebrating a birthday party, New Year's Eve or a religious festival, stay safe when you have people in your home by thinking ahead.

  • Fit a smoke alarm

  • If you have guests staying the night, make sure they know how to escape safely

  • Let guests know of any features they may not be familiar with e.g. how to open the front door

  • Tell guests where the door and window keys are kept

  • Take particular care of elderly people, children and people with disabilities

  • If you discover a fire in your home, raise the alarm and let everyone in your home know - get out - stay out and call 999
