Has a fire resulted in a Cannock Chase accident?Call our team today
When a fire occurs, people can be hurt in a number of ways. In addition to being harmed by smoke inhalation, if people are unable to escape from the fire or leave a burning building they could suffer burns to their body. In some instances, people may suffer a Cannock Chase accident whilst attempting to leave a burning building in a hurry. If for example, a fire were to start in your home, you may attempt to leave quickly but fall down the stairs or trip in the process.
Unfortunately, sometimes people do accidentally cause fires in their own homes from time to time. A discarded cigarette butt or an unattended frying pain are just two examples of relatively small things than can result in a fire hazard within a matter of minutes.
Fortunately, many people do have smoke alarms fitted inside their homes so if a fire does break out, they are alerted quickly. A functional smoke alarm could enable you to leave a burning building and could save your life so it’s always worth installing at least one or two in your home. In addition to installing an alarm, you’ll want to ensure that it is maintained according to the manufacturers instructions so that it is working properly at all times. For example, you may be advised to test the unit regularly or to change the batteries in the alarm every six months.
Although smoke alarms do regularly save lives and prevent people from suffering a Cannock Chase accident, sometimes people do suffer injuries as a result of a fire, even if they have a smoke alarm installed in the property.
