  1. Staying Fire Safe

    Staying Fire Safe
    Nothing is more important than keeping you and your family safe. So if you have an open fire or stove in your home, here are a few precautions you can take:

    • Get your chimney swept - HETAS (Heating Equipment Testing and Approval Scheme) recommend that your chimney is swept at least once a year as a minimum. We would recommend twice a year for both wood burning and solid fuel appliances to prevent chimney fires.
    • Maintain your appliance - most stove manufacturers recommend that stoves are serviced annually to ensure optimum output and safety.
    • Store your solid fuel correctly - excess solid fuel could catch fire accidentally. Make sure your solid fuel is stored in a dry container away from your home e.g. a coal bunker. If limited for space, then store excess in a cool, dry place such as a cellar.
    • Get a smoke detector - when a smoke alarm senses smoke, it sounds a shrill alarm hopefully giving you and your family precious time to escape.
