Diwali

Diwali is the five-day Festival of Lights, celebrated by millions of Hindus, Sikhs and Jains across the world. As such, there is an increase in the use of candles, lanterns and oil lamps (known as diyas or divas) by those celebrating. It is believed that light signifies goodness, enlightenment, knowledge and wisdom; therefore, candles and lamps are used throughout the day and into the night to ward off darkness and evil.

Statistics show that there is an increased fire risk at Diwali time but, by taking just a few simple precautions, you can reduce the dangers to yourself and your family.

Please also ensure that you have working smoke alarms on every level of your home, and test them regularly.
