Student Safety

Partying, smoking and drinking are all part of student lives - but they could be putting you at higher risk of fire.

Take extra care if you smoke when you have been drinking and be careful if you fancy chips in the middle of the night – a third of all deep-frying injuries occur between 10pm and 4am!

​Fit a smoke alarm

Make sure that smoke alarms are installed on each level of your house - rented properties are less likely to be fitted with smoke alarms and without a smoke alarm you are twice as likely to die in a fire. If you are a student in Wales you can request a home fire safety visit from your local Fire and Rescue Service who can provide and fit a smoke alarm for free – ring 0800 169 1234.​​
