Safe Use of Candles during the Winter and Festive Period

*  Extinguish all candles before you go to bed. In particular, never leave a burning candle in a bedroom
*  Keep candles, matches and cigarette lighters out of reach of children and never place lit candles where they can be knocked over by children or household pets
*  Always put candles on a heat resistant surface/ holders. Be especially careful with night lights and tea lights, which can get hot enough to melt plastic or ignite Combustible Christmas decorations
*  Position candles away from objects that may catch fire, like Christmas trees, greeting cards, ribbons and other decorations
*  Never move lit candles
*  Always use a candle snuffer or a spoon to extinguish candles or tea lights
