We at Veteran Fire Safety Ltd are as busy as ever with our trainers travelling all over the UK, even our directors  had a trip over to Germany this month, and with January filling up already we are excited at what 2017 will bring for us.


With Christmas only a few weeks away and everyone looking forward to time off work and maybe just a few drinks we want you to remember to stay safe , here are just a few suggestions to help:


Stay Safe at Christmas


Christmas is a special time for celebration and should not end in tragedy because of the extra hazards that are present at this time of year.


Christmas Lights


  • Check the fuses are the right type (see the box for the maximum size of fuse you should use).
  • If a bulb blows, replace them.
  • Don’t leave fairy lights on when you go out or when you go to sleep.
  • Don’t let the bulbs touch anything that can burn easily, like paper.
  • Don’t overload sockets.




  • Decorations made of light tissue paper or cardboard burn easily.
  • Don’t attach them to lights or heaters.
  • Don’t put them immediately above or around the fireplace.
  • Keep them away from candles.
