We are urging residents to 'Take Extra Care'
Please make sure you have a working smoke alarm installed in your home and know exactly how to get out of your home if a fire was to break out.
Think before you park
Would a fire engine be able to get to your house in an emergency?
Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service is urging people to think about the way they park their vehicles to prevent lives from being put at risk.
We know sometimes space can be limited but please try and leave enough room for a fire engine to get past should it need to respond to an emergency.
