Safety Advice and Fire Safety Check List

Safety advice
These fire prevention tips can help reduce the chances of a fire in your home.
Smoke alarms
Smoke alarms save lives – remember to maintain smoke detection devices in your home.
  •  Be advised that your main smoke detector device is linked to the central fire panel system; therefore, use our registered contractor to perform any maintenance.      
  • It’s also recommended to install a carbon monoxide alarm in any room used as living accommodation which contains a fixed combustion appliance (this excludes gas cookers). 

Test the smoke alarms in your property monthly.
  • At Kings Chelsea, your smoke detector is linked to the communal alarm system; please check with the Management office before you test. 
  • Testing your alarm may cause false alarms. 
  • If any of your smoke alarms have a one-year battery, make sure it is changed. every year. Only take the battery out when you need to replace it. 
  • Never disconnect or take the batteries out of your alarm if it goes off by mistake. 
  • Mains-powered alarms are powered by your home power supply and have a back-up battery in case of a power cut. They need to be installed by our qualified registered contractor and, like battery alarms, they do require testing. 

In the kitchen
Cook safely - Take extra care if you need to leave the kitchen whilst cooking, take pans off the heat or turn them down to avoid risk.
  • Avoid cooking when under the influence of alcohol. 
  • Avoid leaving children in the kitchen alone when cooking on the hob. Keep matches and saucepan handles out of their reach to keep them safe. 
  • Keep tea towels and cloths away from the cooker and hob. 
  • Double check the cooker is off when you’ve finished cooking.  

Deep Fat Frying
• Take care when cooking with hot oil – it sets alight easily. • Make sure food is dry before putting it in hot oil so it doesn’t splash. • If the oil starts to smoke – it’s too hot. Turn off the heat and leave it to cool. • Use a thermostat-controlled electric deep fat fryer. This means it can’t overheat. 
How to avoid electrical fires:
  • Try and keep to one plug adaptor per socket. 
  • Keep your eyes peeled for signs of dangerous or loose wiring, such as scorch marks, hot plugs and sockets, fuses that blow or circuit-breakers that trip for no obvious reason, or flickering lights. 
  • Unplug appliances when you’re not using them, they are fully charged, or when you go to bed.  

Keep electrical appliances clean and in good working order to prevent them triggering a fire.
An extension lead or adaptor will have a limit to how many amps it can take. Be careful not to overload your plugs to reduce the risk of a fire. Appliances use different amounts of power – a television may use a 3amp plug and a vacuum cleaner a 5amp plug, for example. It’s important to know the limit.
Stub cigarettes out properly and dispose of them carefully. Put them out and make sure they are out!  
  • Don’t leave a lit cigarette, cigar or pipe lying around. They can easily start a fire. 
  • Unplug e-cigarettes when fully charged and ensure you are using the correct charger type.  


Make sure candles are secured in a proper holder and away from materials that may catch fire – like curtains or tissues.
  • Put out candles when you leave the room, and make sure they’re out completely at night. 
  • Consider using LED or battery-operated candles. 
  • Keep pets away from a lit candle. 

Barbeques are NOT used on balconies. The fire service urge people to never use a barbeque or open flame on balconies or indoors. 
Special assistance  
If you feel you need special assistance in evacuating your building and have not got a personal evacuation plan in place already, then please speak with your property manager.
