Common Fire Prevention

Did you know?

  • 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.

Read the sections below for more information about preventing the most common fires in the home.

Have you had a Home Fire Safety Check?

We offer free home fire safety checks to households where we know there is a higher risk of fire, primarily the more vulnerable groups in the community but you can also carry out your own. Read the information at the link below to find out more.
