At Watford Community Housing, we work very hard behind the scenes to ensure our residents are at a minimum risk of fire. Here are a few things you can do to make sure you and your family are protected:
- Smoke alarms can save your life, but only if they are working. Make sure to test them regularly and report any issues by calling or emailing us.
- Avoid smoking indoors. If you must, make sure you stub cigarettes out properly and dispose of them safely.,
- Make sure all electrical appliances (like hair straighteners, laptops and kitchen appliances) are switched off when you are not using them. Registering your appliances also reduces fire risks - you can find out more here.
- Take extra care in the kitchen and don’t leave cooking unattended.
