#1. Install Smoke Alarms and Check Them Regularly
Ensure smoke alarms are installed in your home, and that they are working. Check that they are uncovered and test them weekly. Never remove batteries for use in toys.
#2. Avoid Overload
Don’t overload sockets or electrical adaptors by plugging too many appliances into one socket, especially those with a high electrical current such as kettles, irons and heaters.
#3. Check Christmas Lights
Be sure to check Christmas lights and electrical decorations for frayed cables or wiring. If they’re damaged, replace them. Light up decorations can be a major fire risk.
