ESCAPING FROM FIRE
Planning your escape
• You will only have a short time to get out, so plan your escape route rather
than wait until there is a fire
ESCAPING FROM FLATS OR MAISONETTES
If you live in a flat, maisonette or Supported Living
Accommodation please follow this extra advice:
If fire breaks out in your flat
• Think of another way out in case the normal one is blocked
• Leave the room where the fire is straight away, then close the door
• Ensure everyone in your house understands the escape plan and knows
what to do
• Tell everyone in your flat and get them to leave. Close the flat entrance door behind you
• Keep the escape routes clear of obstructions at all times
• Do not stop to collect personal belongings
• Ensure that everyone in the house knows where the door and window keys
are kept
• Do not stay behind to put the fire out
If fire strikes
• Leave the premises by the nearest available exit
• Fire can strike when you least expect it, often during the night
• If your smoke alarm goes off while you are asleep, don’t investigate. Shout
to wake everyone up, and get them out as quickly as possible. Never assume
that it is a false alarm
• Check closed doors with the back of the hand. If they are warm do not open
because this means there is a fire on the other side
• Smoke and fumes can also kill. If there is a lot of smoke, get down as near to
the floor as possible where the air will be cleaner
• Do not rush, keep calm and get everyone out as quickly as possible
• Do not stop to pick up valuables
• If your escape is blocked by fire it may be safer to stay put until the Fire
Service arrives. Gather everyone into one ‘safe’ room (if possible with a
telephone). Close the door and use towels, sheets or pillows to block any
gaps to stop the smoke. Go to a window, call for help and wait at the open
window to be rescued
• Call the Fire Service – dial 999
• If there is a lift – do not use
• Wait outside away from the building
• Call the Fire Service – dial 999
If you see or hear of a fire in another part of the building
• The building is designed to contain a fire in the flat where it starts
• Therefore remain in your flat and ensure the flat entrance door is kept shut
• Should smoke start entering your flat from beneath the fire door place a wet
towel along the bottom edge
• Only leave if you are told to leave by the Fire Service
• If there is a lift – do not use
• If you are in any doubt - it is safer to remain in your flat and await further
instruction from the Fire Service
• Call the Fire Service – dial 999
Remember
Communal staircases, corridors and balconies should be kept clear of all
combustible material, i.e prams, bicycles, domestic waste.
Each year fires in the home claim many hundreds of lives
Please read this leaflet carefully
If your oil or fat pan catches fire – do not move the pan. If it is safe to do so,
turn off the heat/power then place a damp tea towel or fire blanket over the
pan to smother the flames. Never throw water onto the fire. Leave the pan
to cool down for 30 minutes. If you cannot control the fire yourself, leave the
room, close the door and telephone the Fire Service by dialling 999.
Candles are special… So take special care
For many people of all ages, candles are at the centre
of birthdays, family occasions and the home itself. However, candles, as with any naked flame, can be
a cause of fire in the home, particularly where there
are children around.
Great care should be taken when using candles. Follow this simple advice:
• Always place candles out of the reach of children and pets
• Never leave a candle burning unattended
• Keep candles away from hair or clothing
• Always place candles upright in suitable holders, which cannot fall over easily or transmit heat
• Always make sure that candles are put out properly,
especially before going to bed
The smoke alarm fitted in your home has been hard
wired into the home’s electrical system with a backup battery. You will need
to test the battery every month and we will service the fire alarm once a year
when we carry out your annual gas safety check.

Use the right fuse: A fuse is a safety device designed to stop overheating in
faulty appliances. If the wrong fuse is fitted and a fault develops this may result
in fire.
Use adaptors safely: If an adaptor is used with too many appliances connected
to it, the socket and the main wiring circuit in the house may be overloaded
which in turn leads to a fire starting.
Electric blanket safety: Every year 20 people die and 250 are injured in Britain
because of electric blanket fires. Never leave an electric blanket switched on
while you are in bed unless it is marked ‘suitable for all night use’. Check the
blanket, flex and plug regularly for damage and if in doubt do not use. Always
follow the manufacturers instructions.
General electrical safety: Switch off and unplug appliances which are not
designed to be left on when not in use. For example, TVs, washing machines,
tumble dryers etc. It will also save you money.
Never run electrical cables under carpets. Never
repair or re-join cables with insulating tape. Always
replace the entire cable.
Leave all electrical repairs and alterations to
qualified electricians

Whenever it is possible use a thermostat controlled
deep fat fryer to help avoid a fire. Never cook with oil or fat if you have been
drinking alcohol.
Make sure that smoking materials are never left
burning unattended. Make sure that they are
properly stubbed out in a suitable ashtray before
leaving the room and disposed of safely before
going to bed. Never smoke in bed or in an armchair when feeling drowsy. This is especially important when you or any members of your family are under the influence of alcohol or medication.
According to the National Fire Protection Association,
almost two-thirds of home fire deaths resulted from
fires in properties without working smoke alarms.
A working smoke alarm significantly increases your
chances of surviving a deadly home fire.
BENGALI
Cooking accounts for around one third of all house fires
in Britain. The most common type of fire involves deep
fat frying. Cooking oil is an ideal fuel for a fire and if
left unattended whilst heating up, will catch fire in a
few minutes.
Over a third of fatal household fires attended by the
Fire Service each year result from careless use of
smoking materials; cigarettes, pipes and cigars.
