Please do not

  • Cover sprinkler heads with any obstruction
  • Clean sprinkler heads with chemicals
  • Hand anything from the sprinkler heads
  • Paint or fill over sprinkler heads
  • Use wallpaper steamers too close to the sprinkler heads

  • If you have a sprinkler activation in your home, evacuate the building as quickly as possible. The fire brigade will automatically be contacted, however, if you also wish to call 999, please do so.
