London Fire Brigade has issued advice to households to protect themselves during the Bank Holiday firefighters' strike.
- Check your smoke alarm to make sure it works.
- Take extra care when you are cooking or smoking.
- Plan your escape route
- Only dial 999 in a genuine emergency, for example a fire not a pet rescue.
- Share fire safety tips – talk to friends and family (visit the Brigade's website for advice).
