Keeping your home safe from fire
The London Fire Brigade offer free home safety checks, free fitted smoke alarms and advice on fire safety to people who might be at risk.
Keeping your home gas safe
You can stay gas safe in your own home by making sure you:
Have all gas appliances checked every year
Use a gas safe engineer to carry out the work – remember to ask to see their ID card
Buy an audible carbon monoxide alarm close to your gas appliances
Check your appliances for any signs that they are faulty – for example a yellow flame rather than a blue one
Know the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning (headaches, dizziness, nausea, breathlessness, collapse and loss of consciousness)
Only use an appliance for its intended purpose
Ensure there is always enough ventilation for gas appliances to burn correctly.
