candle fire safety Keep your Flames Under Control!

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we’re sharing some fire safety advice to help you stay safe and make it a day to remember for all the right reasons.


Not just on this holiday, it is always important to practice safe candle usage to avoid fires. Candles are supposed to give a romantic glow, not actual flames. Follow these tips when burning and extinguishing candles to stay safe.

  • Never leave candles unattended. Put burning candles out when you leave the room and always remember to check that they are completely put out at night.
  • Make sure candles are put out long before you go to sleep to avoid the danger of you accidentally knocking over a burning candle whilst asleep. Also, put candles out with a snuffer or spoon as sparks can fly if you blow them out.
  • Once lit, don’t move any candles and don’t burn several candles close together as this could cause the flame to flare.
  • Burn candles in a well-ventilated room, which is out of the way of draughts, vents or air currents. This will help to prevent rapid or uneven burning, soot and dripping.

Lastly, make sure that you know your escape plans in the event of a fire.
