Press Release - Is your chimney ready for winter?
With summer drawing to a close, and the evenings starting to get noticeably cooler you might be tempted to light a fire, rather than put the central heating on. Are you sure your chimney is clean and ready to light?From the 7-13 September, Chimney Fire Safety Week takes place providing a timely reminder to make sure that your chimney is ready for the winter months ahead. Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Service are supporting this Fire Kills campaign by encouraging householders to ensure their chimney is safe and swept by a registered chimney sweep. Marc House, Community Safety Prevention Manager explains: “Now the cooler evenings have arrived, people will begin to start using open fires and their chimneys again. In order to keep you and your family safe from fire, you need to take necessary steps such as ensuring your chimney is swept regularly and I would urge all householders to have a working smoke alarm in their home.” Open fires not only warm up a home, but also create a unique relaxing ambience. With the numbers of people using open fires growing, the Fire Kills campaign has provided some top tips for safer chimneys.
• Always use a fire guard to protect against flying sparks from hot embers
• Make sure embers are properly put out before you go to bed
• Keep chimneys and flues clean and well maintained
Marc adds: “Latest statistics show that there were 6,000 chimney fires in England in 2013/14, but most chimney fires are preventable. “All chimneys and flue-ways should be cleaned and checked to ensure they’re free from debris and in full working order before your central heating goes on. A blocked or defective chimney can cause both chimney fires and carbon monoxide poisonings so it’s very important to employ a professional qualified Chimney Sweep.”To request free Home Safety advice call free on: now 0800 0502999.
