Fire advice

If there's a fire in your home:

  • Have a planned escape route
  • Tell everyone in the property
  • Stay low or crawl as smoke rises
  • Check if doors are warm before opening - the fire could be just behind it!
  • If possible, close the door to the room where the fire is
  • Find a safe place nearby, call the fire service and wait for them
  • Don't go back for anything

If you live in a flatted block or Independent Living scheme, please follow the advice of the specific location
