With the summer holidays just around the corner, many of us will be counting down the days until we can escape for some much needed relaxation. Whether it’s a week in the sun, an adventure holiday or just time spent travelling to see family and friends, we all enjoy locking the front door and heading for a change of scenery.
If you’re going to be leaving your home or office unoccupied for more than just a few days over the summer period, it’s important to consider your fire safety and the steps that should be taken before you head off on your trip.
Before you go away:
Going on holiday should be a time of relaxation and fun so by taking just a few fire safety precautions before you head off on holiday your enjoyment should not be spoilt by an unwanted fire back home.
It is also worth considering your fire safety whilst on holiday too. Our blog post Keeping Safe During the Warm Weather is full of tips for keeping safe this summer from BBQs to campfires.
Even if you are travelling further afield and staying in hotels and apartments then it is always a good idea to check out the safety in your surroundings.
Whilst on Holiday
Why not prepare yourself with a list of things to consider before you leave for your holiday, make a holiday checklist and tick things off as you go, right up to the moment you lock the door. The security of your home or office is something that should never be forgotten.
