A bedtime routine to keep you safe from fire whilst you sleep

You are at more risk of a fire when you are asleep, so it’s a good idea to check everything on this list before you go to sleep:

  • Check your cooker is turned off
  • Turn off and unplug any electrical appliances, unless they are designed to be left on such as fridges and freezers
  • Don’t go to sleep with the washing machine, tumble dryer or dishwasher on
  • Make sure all heaters are turned off
  • Put candles and cigarettes out properly
  • Don’t leave mobile phones, tablets or e-cigarettes charging over night
  • Close all inside doors to prevent smoke spreading if a fire starts
  • Make sure exits are kept clear
  • Keep any door or window keys where anyone can find them
  • Ensure mobility aids are close to hand for those who require them
