Set your special

            someone’s heart alight,

            nothing else!

            If you are planning on a romantic night in on February 14th, and think candles and tea-lights may
            add to the ambience, here’s a few safety tips to keep in mind this Valentine’s Night.
            Candles can pose a significant fire risk to your home and family especially when left unattended.
            If you do decide to use candles to brighten up your evening remember to:

              •  Be particularly careful with tea lights and
                  night lights which can melt plastic as they
                  get very hot.

              •  Use proper candle holders so they can’t
                  fall over, and place on a heat resistant
              •  Make sure candles are nowhere near
                  clothes or hair.

              •  Keep your candles away from items which
                  could catch fire such as curtains, fabrics
                  and furniture.

              •  If you need to leave the room remember to
                  extinguish the candles first.
              •  Make sure your smoke alarms are working.

              •  Keep a smoke alarm at each level of your
                  property and in every room.

              •  Check the alarms once a week.
              •  Once a year change your battery, vacuum
                  and clean the alarm casing to make sure
                  there is no dust blocking the sensor
