Candle Safety Week
Monday 23 November 2015 - Sunday 29th November 2015
Candles can provide ambiance and relaxation but they can also be very dangerous.
If you use candles, make sure you use them safely. Here are a few tips:
- Do not place candles near flammable material
- Make sure they are fully extinguished before leaving the room; heat travels and can easily set things alight
- Always use sturdy holders and do not leave lit candles unattended as they can easily be knocked over by children, pets or even the wind
- Keep torches handy in case of a power cut, they are much safer than candles
