Child Safety Week 23rd – 29th June 2014

Child Safety Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of the risks to children in their everyday lives. From poisoning, falls and everyday things around the house, Child Safety Week is highlighting the risks and how you can make life safer for your child.

Of course fire plays a big role of safety in the home. This week we are asking you to think about fire in the home… what are the risks at your house? Do you have a fire action plan? Would your children know what to do if there was a fire? The thick black smoke that a fire creates can kill a child in less than a minute and the smoke alone can make you unconscious whilst you sleep so it’s very important to firstly prevent fire but always have a plan of action.

 

– Install smoke alarms on every level of your home. Once they are installed make sure they work and test them on a regular basis.

– Do you smoke? If so make sure you stub out cigarettes fully. Don’t smoke while you are tired or in bed, you may accidently fall asleep with a lit cigarette in your hand.  

– Don’t over load plug sockets and look out for faulty and over-heating electrical equipment and wiring/cables.

– Do not leave cooking unattended.

– Talk to your family and discuss your evacuation plan. Make sure your children know what to do if there is a fire.

 

In the event of a fire make sure you:
