Planning a safe escape in the event of an emergency Part Two

March 6, 2012

Landlord Information

After you have made your plan you must explain what to do with everyone in your household.

Make sure if you have children they understand what they have to do and where they need to go. Put reminders on fridge doors and by any telephones, include your address on these just incase a child needs to give any information over the phone.

Direct Gov have a fire safety advise for parents and child carers section, CLICK HERE to find out more.

The next thing you may want to do is practise the plan, practise makes perfect after all!

Make sure all plugs are out of their sockets before you go to sleep...

Dangers and fire hazards while you are sleeping…

When you are in a deep sleep it will be much harder to realise any dangers that may be occuring around you. If you have no fire alarms it is even harder!

You must make sure before you go to bed at night…

  • Check the cooker is turned off
  • Turn off and unplug electrical appliances (unless they are meant to be left on, like your freezer)
  • Put candles and cigarettes out properly
  • Turn heaters off and put up fire guards
  • Make sure exits are kept clear
  • Close inside doors at night to stop a fire from spreading*
 For any other fire safety advice visit the Direct Gov* website, they provide clear guides to keep you and your family safe in your home.
