How safe is your charger?

As we all move forward in this ever changing technical world and rely more and more upon electrical devices, each of us will, no doubt, own at least one charging device in order to supply power and charge our devices.

We should all be aware that chargers can actually cause fire and therefore should be used safely and correctly. The first thing to consider is the actual charger itself.  When it comes to charging your phone, tablet, kindle, laptop etc., you should always buy a branded  charger or purchase one from a reputable, reliable retailer making sure it is the correct charger for the device it is intended for.

Distinguishing the Extinguisher

You discover a small fire either at home or at your place of work.  What would you do? Knowledge is key and with it comes confidence which could affect the way you would react which in turn could save your life and lives of others.

First thing you should know is how to use a fire extinguisher.  There will be no time to read instructions in an emergency fire situation.  It is also important to know when is it safe to tackle a fire.  Always ensure you or someone raises the alarm and the emergency services are called prior to any further actions. Remember your safety is the number one priority!
