Home Safety Tips

Posted Sep 27, 2006

  • You should have a smoke alarm on each level of your house, in a central position
  • Test your fire alarms at least once a week, and replace the batteries as recommended by the manufacturer
  • Half of home fires start in the kitchen - never leave young children alone in the kitchen, take extra care when cooking with hot oil
  • Cheap chemical carbon monoxide detectors should be installed wherever you have a gas appliance, this includes open gas fires. If your chimney or vents become blocked, dangerous gasses can quickly fill a room.
  • Consider routes that could be used to break into your house and fit window locks where necessary.
  • You can find wireless burglar alarms for around £100 that could further deter break-ins
