Home should be a safe space for everyone. With this post, we aim to help you with one important aspect of that—home fire safety.


Practising fire safety at home doesn’t have to be a chore if you have the right information and take the relevant precautions.


Where are the danger zones in a house?

  • Electrical points and areas as short-circuits and other types of malfunctions can cause electrical fires

  • The kitchen as high heat, open flame, and the use of gas and electrical appliances increase the risk of fire

What can I do about it?

  • Avoid overcharging devices

  • Ensure that your chargers and cables bear the relevant safety marks and certifications

  • Obtain a Home Fire Safety Kit which includes 1) a Portable Fire Extinguisher, 2) a Fire Blanket and 3) a Battery-Operated Smoke/Heat Detector

  • Store your Portable Fire Extinguisher near your main door or exit

  • Store your Fire Blanket in the kitchen or near the exit

  • Install your Battery-Operated Smoke/Heat Detectors in key locations within your home and test them regularly
