BIBA URGES HOME INSURANCE HEALTH CHECK DURING BONFIRE NIGHT AND DIWALI
With bonfire night rapidly approaching, and Diwali just starting, the British Insurance Brokers’ Association reminds homeowners and businesses to check they are adequately covered for public liability, building and contents insurance given the increased risks posed by large numbers of candles, lighting a bonfire or setting off fireworks at their property.
Every year, BIBA members receive calls for help from those caught out by lit flames, bonfires and firework mishaps. Many people are hurt every year at this time from bonfire and firework-related injuries. We all need to pay attention to safety precautions at all times, particularly where children are near or where they will be handling candles and fireworks. It’s also peace of mind to know your insurance policy is up to date and you haven’t forgotten to renew it.
