Protecting your home and loved ones against fire

In 2020, more than 33,000 calls were made to the Hong Kong Fire Services Department, of which 85.5% were related to building fires. Between 2016 to 2020, 84 people lost their lives in fire accidents and 90% of these accidents were caused by residential fires. While properties and possessions can usually be replaced, sentimental items and most importantly, lives cannot.

Here are some quick tips to fire-proof your home:

Do not use the phone or watch TV when cooking. Set alarm timers to turn off the stove
Keep corridors and lift lobbies clear of storage and discarded items
Do not overload power outlets by plugging in multiple electrical equipments and appliances
