Lockdown Restrictions 

According to the latest reports, lockdown in Northern Ireland will last until March 5th though experts warn restrictions may be extended further. This has put many organisations under tremendous strain, including the Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Service (NIFRS). For that reason, the NIFRS has called on everyone in their community to help to ease the mounting pressure they face by making sure their homes are safe and secure.  

A spokesperson for the NIFRS stated that lockdown continues to be a high risk time of year for accidental house fires and other dangers. 

“The fact more people are spending time at home due to Covid-19 restrictions, and the pressures NIFRS is currently under due to the pandemic, means that it is vital that the community play their part in being fire safe and fire aware,” the NIFRS spokesperson said.

Fortunately, there are a number of steps you can take to make sure you are staying safe at home and protecting yourself from fire. At First Reaction, we are dedicated to providing you with the equipment you need to stay safe. 

STOP Fire

First of all, it’s vital to follow the STOP fire guiding message. In addition to quality fire safety equipment in the home, this easy-to-remember rule can help you stay safe.  

  • S – Have working Smoke alarms. 
  • T – Test alarms once a week. 
  • O – Be aware of Obvious dangers.
  • P – Plan your escape. 

Of course, the NIFRS will still maintain a full service, and respond to emergencies should you call 999. 

What you need for fire safety 

At First Reaction we pride ourselves on providing everything you need to maintain first class fire protection at home. Keep you and your family safe with First Reaction. Here are just a few of our products we have: 

Fire Extinguishers 

One of the most important steps in staying safe at home from fires is having a quality fire extinguisher. Our water mist fire extinguishers can be used on a class A, B, C, and F fires as well as live electrical equipment. A quality fire extinguisher is so essential each of our Surface Kits includes one. 

Fire Blanket

A fire blanket is essential for safely putting out cooking oil fires. With more people cooking from home than ever the chances of an accidental fire are greatly increased. Kitchen fires can quickly spread out of control but with a fire blanket you can safeguard your kitchen and protect your family. These are ideal for making sure small fires don’t get out of hand. 

Burn Dressings

Unfortunately, accidental burns can easily occur in the home. Storing Burn Dressings in an easy-to-reach location can be the key to treating a scald or kitchen burn quickly and effectively. They keep burns clean, and prevent the risk of infection.
