Eid is celebrated to mark the end of Ramadan, a month of fasting, and the preparation of special celebratory meals increases the risk of cooking fires during this time.
Nearly 57% of all fires in the home are caused by cooking accidents and there are 20 fat pan fires every day in the UK.
By taking just a few simple precautions you can greatly reduce the risks for yourself and your family.
Ensure you have smoke alarms on every floor of your home - test them weekly to make sure they work
Don't leave cooking unattended and take extra care when cooking with oil, as it easily sets alight.
We also urge women to be extra careful that their clothing - keep well away from naked flames.
We have a number of Eid cards which feature home fire safety information - translated into Urdu, Bengali, Turkish, Arabic and Somali.
