Child Safety Week: fire
During Child Safety Week two toddlers will be admitted to hospital because they’ve inhaled smoke from a fire in the home. The thick black smoke from a fire can fill your home in minutes and kill in seconds.
If a fire starts when you’re asleep and you don’t have a working smoke alarm there’s a big chance the poisonous smoke will quickly make you unconscious and you’ll never wake up!
Make sure you have a working smoke alarm on every level of your home and double your chances of getting your family out.
Take a few minutes every week to check your alarms are working. And pledge some time this week to fitting your smoke alarms, if they’re still sitting in their boxes!
