Eid - fire safety advice

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.

Eid - fire safety tips

  • 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.
