Fire lovers rubbish. They find ideal breeding grounds in accumulation of cartons, packing materials and other waste products.

  • Good housekeeping is to be observed.
  • Get rubbish out of your premises as soon as possible.

If you use paint, adhesives or chemicals, isolate them in a separate store room well away from any source of heat. Aerosols, gas cartridges and cylinders can explode and start a fire if exposed to heat. Always follow manufacturers instructions, paying special attention to storage recommendations.

An increasing number of fires are caused intentionally by vandals and thieves. Ensure doors, windows, gates, walls and fences are secured effectively especially, when premises are closed at night and at weekends.
