FIRE SAFETY - Lincolnshire Fire & Rescue.

From Lincolnshire Fire & Rescue

Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue is reminding people to have their chimneys swept to avoid sparking a blaze.....

Top tips for safer chimneys:-
  1. Always use a fire guard to protect against flying sparks from hot embers
  2. Make sure embers are properly put out  before you go to bed
  3. Keep chimneys and flues clean and well maintained

Regular maintenance of your chimney will depend on the fuel you burn:-
  • Smokeless coals - At least once a year
  • Wood - Up to four times a year
  • Bituminous coal - Twice a year
  • Oil - Once a year
  • Gas - Once a year
