Fire safety


WI members get advice from King’s Lynn firefighters.

A very chatty ex-Marine from Texas, courtesy of Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service, kept Stanhoe and Barwick WI members busy at their February meeting with hints and tips on keeping safe from fires in the home.

Did you know that you need a smoke detector and carbon monoxide detector correctly positioned on all levels of your home, and that you need to test them once a week?

It will take a fire engine and four crew members 20 minutes to travel to Stanhoe, so make sure that you have door and window keys accessible upstairs as well as downstairs, and that you exit rapidly, feet first, from the nearest window if necessary.

Never shout “Help”, but shout “Fire” to alert people, and try to have a phone available on all levels too for emergency use.

But above all keep all doors closed, as a closed door will hold back fire for 20 minutes. And never go back in once you have escaped.

Tea lights are one of the greatest hazards in the home for causing fires, we were warned. A set of them was prominent on our sales table, and no one took them home!

Well, we live and learn at the WI.
