Always put candles on a heat resistant surface. TVs are not fire-resistant objects
Position candles away from curtains – or furniture. And keep them out of draughts
Do not put candles under shelves. Make sure there is at least three feet (one metre) between a candle and any surface above it
Keep clothes and hair away. If there is any chance you could lean across a candle and forget it’s there, put it somewhere else.
Keep children and pets away.
Keep candles apart. Leave at least four inches (10cm) between two burning candles
Do not move a candle when it is burning.
Do not let anything fall into the hot wax like match sticks
Extinguish candles before leaving a room. Never go to sleep with a candle still burning and never leave a burning candle in a child’s bedroom
Use a snuffer or a spoon to put the candle out.
Always make sure the candle is extinguished properly. Candles that have been put out can go on smouldering and start a fire.
