Your views wanted on draft plans for a new fire station near M53/M56

Draft plans and designs for the proposed new fire station near to the M56 in Mollington have been unveiled by Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service.
The proposal is to build the new fire station on land off Powey Lane, Mollington. As well as a traditional fire engine, the station will also house a number of specialist vehicles to deal with risks specific to the local area in Chester and Ellesmere Port, such as heritage buildings and industrial complexes.
The location near to the motorway network will also provide these vehicles with ready access to respond to other incidents across the whole of Cheshire.

Deaf Awareness Week

Firefighters are using National Deaf Awareness Week (May 19-25) to ensure people who are deaf or hard of hearing have the right smoke alarms in their homes.
It is vital that those people have the right smoke alarm technology in their home to protect them and give them that valuable time to escape from a house fire.
A range of alarms have been designed specifically for the hard of hearing, including an under-pillow pad that vibrates when the smoke detector is activated.
Residents who are deaf or hard of hearing can book a home safety check by texting 'HSA' and your name and address to 07624 808300.

Boat Safety advice

Firefighters would like to raise awareness of boat fire safety during May. The number of boat fires on our coastal and inland waters is relatively low. However, when they do occur, they quite often have devastating consequences.
Due to the remote location of moorings, the fire and rescue service can experience difficulties in gaining access to an incident. On many occasions, these incidents result in the total destruction of the boat and to surrounding property.
Please use the link below to find view some simple advice to ensure your boating activities are a safe and enjoyable event.
