Fire and Rescue News

 

Welcome to the February edition of the Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service e-Newsletter

Date: Tuesday, February 04, 2014                                             


National Sprinkler Week

Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service is supporting the very first National Sprinkler Week from 3rd - 9th February. The aim of Fire Sprinkler Week is to widen awareness of the safety benefits of sprinklers in preventing loss and improving fire safety in businesses and homes across the UK.
Did you know that sprinklers are the equivalent to having a firefighter ready and waiting in every room of your home or business?
Smoke alarms can warn of a fire, while sprinklers control the fire or even extinguish it completely.

National Chip Week

Reduce the chance of having a fire in your home, by throwing away your chip pan during National Chip Week (17th Feb - 23rd Feb).

Please do not use traditional chip pans, because they can cause fatal fires. There are other options for cooking chips which will keep you and your family safer. Please opt for an alternative to chip pans.
