What to do in the event of a fire - simple step guide
In the tragic event of a fire outbreak, we've included below some steps that are strongly advised in order to best protect yourselves and others as well as your building.
What to do if there is a fire:
The Department of Communities and Local Government recommends the following:
• Keep calm and act quickly, get everyone out as soon as possible.
• Don’t waste time investigating what’s happened or rescuing valuables.
• If there’s smoke, keep low where the air is clearer.
• Before you open a door check if it’s warm. If it is, don’t open it – fire is on the other side.
• Call 999 as soon as you’re clear of the building. 999 calls are free.
• Many local Fire and Rescue Services will come to your home and carry out a Home Fire Risk Check to help keep you and your family safe.
For more information on this matter you can contact your local Fire and Rescue Service on their non-emergency contact number (not 999).
If you require any support or advice with the electrical and fire safety in your building, contact - 01604 696113 today.
