Don’t add fuel to the fire
Following the festive period, you may have an increased amount of rubbish in your home which could be a fire hazard if not stored correctly. Here are some practical tips to keep you and your family safe:
- Have a routine when it comes to putting out the rubbish to avoid excess waste
- Do not keep cardboard, plastics, paper or wood near electrical items or any source of heat
- Keep rubbish away from escape routes as this could slow down your evacuation in the event of an emergency
- Do not store rubbish in communal areas and report any rubbish you find in these areas
