If things start to burn
It is very important to have smoke alarms which will warn you when things start to burn. If things start to burn, telephone 112.
Keep yourself as close to the floor as you can if you must evacuate because things are burning. Smoke rises and it is most often smoke which causes people to die. Close the door behind you when you go out so that the fire will not spread as easily.
It is important that everyone in the family, including children, know how they are to evacuate and where they are to meet when they have evacuated. Remember not to have things in the way on stairways or in front of doors.

- Do not have things which can burn near the stove.

- Do not put burning candles near anything which can easily catch fire, and blow them out when you go out.
