Some Facts about fire…

  • During a fire the air’s normal oxygen level is drastically reduced, causing disorientation.
  • About one in three reported fires start in the kitchen. Not paying attention while cooking was the key cause for almost all kitchen fires.
  • The majority of home fire fatalities occur during the winter and at night when people are sleeping.

Don’t deadlock yourself in…

Deadlocks are an important part of your home security.

However, if you are inside don’t deadlock the door, as this may prevent your family from exiting your home in the event of fire. If you need to deadlock the door, keep the key in the lock incase you need to escape in a hurry.
