The Fire and Rescue Authorities in Great Britain attended over 192,600 fires in 2012-2013; although this figure is fractionally lower than it was the previous year, it still demonstrate how potent the danger from house fires is.
Three-quarters of fire fatalities occurred in dwelling fires – the technical name for house fires – whilst cooking and heating appliances are the source of ignition for more than help of the fires in these buildings, according to the office of National Statistics in the UK.
It is absolutely crucial for your safety, for the safety of your family and for the safety of your home and possessions that you have all the appropriate fire safety equipment installed. Naturally, this includes a fire alarm and a fire evacuation plan, but there are other ways as well of ensuring your home is fully protected.
Fire blankets, supplied by Be Safe Direct, are useful for smothering and putting out fires in the kitchen. Whether your pan is burning, there are flames in the toaster or your waste bin has started smoking, these fire blankets will extinguish the fire with minimal fuss.
Be Safe Direct supply several fire blankets in different sizes, manufactured in the United Kingdom from high quality woven glass fibre. The woven glass fibre is non-flammable and acts as an oxygen sealant, preventing any more oxygen reaching the fire and so starving it of one of the necessary elements.
Whether it is installing a smoke detector or purchasing a fire blanket, you can never pay too much for the price of keeping your loved ones safe around you. However, at Be Safe Direct, our aim is not to reap the biggest pay check but to provide you with the highest quality products at competitive prices.
