With the cooler winter weather, you might be using a fireplace to heat your home. Please follow these safety tips:
- Ensure regular maintenance is undertaken at least once a year by a qualified person.
- Place a mesh screen in front of your fireplace to prevent sparks and wood falling out
- Make sure the chimney is clean, and properly ventilated.
Never use petrol, oil, or kerosene to help light the fire. They could cause an explosion.
