If you’re wondering what to get for Christmas, add a Fire Blanket onto your list!
It is well-known that we all spend a lot more time in the kitchen over to festive season, therefore, it is important to remember that the risk of fires increase this time of year. Having all the necessary fire safety equipment at hand will help you in the event of a potential fire.
A fire blanket is a safety device made from special woven fabric that is fire retardant and is designed to help extinguish small starting fires. They are particularly useful for smothering fat pan fires or for wrapping around a person whose clothing is on fire.
A fire blanket should be kept close to areas at higher risk of fire such as a kitchen or catering environment.
Smaller blankets are ideal for home kitchens or cafe environments that you may associate fire blankets with. Fire blankets can be mounted to a wall and be easily and quickly released.
If using the fire blanket to put out flames, remember to turn off the gas or electric supply, roll up your sleeves and cover your hands with the blanket before placing it on the flames.
