Fire Safety

Welcome to the Fire Safety section on our blog where we post the most important advice on how to be safe when it comes to fire, smoke, and heat at home.

Testing your alarm from time to time is very important, and making sure you have the right fire, smoke, heat, and CO alarms is imperative.

Furthermore, as accidents happen and new rules come out, we at Sparks do our best to introduce the latest fire safety advice and rules from the regulating authorities.

And we offer many links to websites and entities that can help in this respect. Fire kills.

It is best to be safe than sorry. It is good to be reminded of these fire safety tips and advice to make sure we are safe.
