For Householders

Play an active role in keeping your home safe from fire.

If you are contacting us concerning the changes in legislation relating to fire and smoke alarms introduced by the Scottish Government, please visit the Scottish Government website where you will find further information and a list of frequently ask questions.

It is essential that your home has a working smoke alarm on each level of the property. If a fire starts, this will give you and your family time to get to safety.

Doors slow down the spread of potentially deadly smoke and flames, so it is important to remember to close them at night.

Fire often starts in the kitchen and no-one should ever leave a cooker unattended while it is in use. It is important to keep lit candles away from children and pets, and from curtains or other flammable materials.
