Cheshire Fire And Rescue Service January 2017 E-Newsletter - FiRELiNK
Welcome to the January edition of the Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service e-Newsletter.
Smoke alarms save lives
Buying and fitting smoke alarms could help you to save your home and the lives of your family. They should be fitted on every floor. You are four times more likely to die in a house fire if they do not have a smoke alarm.
You should also fit carbon monoxide detectors if your property has a solid fuel burning appliance. Solid fuel burning appliances include things like coal fires and log burning stoves.
