If you discover a fire in your home, get out, stay out and call 999.
- Choose the best escape route- usually your normal way in and out of your home
- If the first route is blocked, think of a second one and keep those escape routes clear at all times
- Make sure everyone knows where to find door and window keeys so they can find them quickly in the event of a fire
If you have children, make sure what they know what to do if they find a fire- to tell an adult and not to run away or hide from danger. You should also take the time to talk through a family fire escape plan, so your children know what to do if a fire starts in the home.
