Whilst we are still feeling the heat of summer, it won’t be long before the days get cooler and it will be heater time before we know it. Always keep in mind the following points to prevent fires from heaters & open fires at your home and in the workplace.

  1. Keep everything one metre away from your heater.
  2. Install and use as per the manufacturer’s instructions.
  3. If you suspect a fault, have the heater serviced or replaced.
  4. Always supervise young children in rooms with open fires or working heaters.
  5. Ensure flues and chimneys are regularly cleaned.
  6. Strong fire screens should be set up in front of open fires.
