In the event of a fire

If a fire occurs, what should you do?

Get out, stay out, call 999

  • Shut the door on the fire if possible and leave your home
  • Don’t delay to save valuables or look for pets
  • Crawl on the floor if there is smoke – the air is cleaner
  • Before you open doors, feel them with the back of your hand. If they’re warm, don’t open them – the fire is on the other side
