Fire Safety Kits can help to protect you and your family from fires

House fires are not commonplace across the United Kingdom, but it is still worth having fire safety kits installed in your home so that you can be better protected against the risks of being injured or killed in a house fire. Most fire safety kits include one or two smoke-detecting fire alarms, a fire extinguisher, and a fire safety blanket.

Be Safe Direct offers a fire safety kit just like this for about £40 including VAT, which is incredibly cheap when you consider the level of protection they can give against getting trapped in a fire – fire alarms especially give you warning against a fire you may not have noticed. The Be Safe Direct fire safety kit includes a fire extinguisher, two alarms and a blanket. The fire extinguisher is one that can be used on a wide range of fires from different sources. Labelled as an ABC Powder Extinguisher, the powder it uses can be used to extinguish Class A, B and C fires. A Class A fire is one which involves (or was caused by) wood, paper or textiles, a Class B fire involves a flammable liquid (such as cooking oil or petrol), and a Class C fire involves a flammable gas (cooking gas for ovens, aerosols) or electrical equipment. Clearly then, for most house fires, it is likely that the extinguisher will be able to stop them when they’re small.

The blanket that comes with the kit is one square metre, and can be draped over cooking appliances, clothes fires and other small contained fires where it can block out the air from reach the fire.

The smoke-detecting fire alarms that are supplied with Be Safe Direct fire safety kits are certified for use in homes and conforms to the regulations that qualify its safe use in detecting fires. These should be fitted on different floors of the house, so that smoke can be detected throughout the house. Given that smoke from a fire is hot, and therefore less dense than air, it is a good idea to fix these smoke alarms to the ceilings, where the smoke will gather if a fire breaks out. This will increase the chance of a fire being detected and therefore help to save your life.
