Christmas 'elf and safety
Christmas is a special time for celebration, but with the glimmering lights, extra cooking and festive mindset, it’s also a time to be aware of fire hazards. The chance of accidental fire in the home increases over Christmas.
Check the halls
You want your Christmas tree to be the centrepiece of your home and not a fuel for fire, so be careful not to overload plug sockets or allow electrics to overheat. Once all the partying is over, remember to turn off any Christmas decorations and blow out any candles before collapsing into bed!
It may seem obvious, but it’s easy to forget amidst the mayhem! Make sure that all of your smoke alarms are working before indulging in festivities, for the safety of you and your family.
Safe night out
Many of us do a lot of drinking during December, preparing yourself for your big nights out is the best way to enjoy the festive fun safely. Eating before you go out is wise, it stops alcohol from flooding your systems and gives you energy for the long night ahead – it might even lessen the dreaded hangover the next day.
