Did you know......?

  • You're twice as likely to die in a fire if you don't have a smoke alarm that works.
  • 90 people die each year because the battery in their smoke alarm was flat or missing.
  • Over half of home fires are caused by cooking accidents.
  • More than five fires a day are started by candles.
  • Every three days someone dies from a fire caused by a cigarette.
  • Faulty electrics (appliances, wiring and overloaded sockets) cause around 7,000 house fires across the country every year.
