Welcome to the January edition of the Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service e-Newsletter.
Review of 2014
2014 was a busy year for Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service not only for incidents but for the wealth of work in our communities and businesses our crews, advocates and support staff carried out. Watch the work we do with younger people in the county, along with awards the Service has won.
New Year’s resolution - test your smoke alarms every month
Make a new year’s resolution: test your smoke alarms on the first of every month in 2014 – and beyond. January is an opportunity for a fresh start, please make safety top of the list. Please make sure that you have enough smoke alarms in the home and that they work. It only takes a few seconds and saves lives.
Could you be an on-call firefighter?
Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service is recruiting for on-call firefighters at the following fire stations: Alsager, Crewe, Ellesmere Port, Knutsford, Runcorn, Stockton Heath, Tarporley and Wilmslow.
Could you be an on-call firefighter? If yes, come along to one of our taster events. The event will give potential applicants the opportunity to meet full-time and on-call crews, as well as training and recruitment officers, who will explain exactly how to follow the recruitment process.
Winter is the season requiring most care and preparation if you are to stay safe on the roads. The British winter is unpredictable. Bad weather can strike suddenly, so please make sure you are prepared for the conditions. Please prepare yourself and your car for winter driving.
Dirty Grills Kill
Most fires start in the kitchen and a major cause of these fires is a build up of fat and oil in grill pans. The fat and oil can easily ignite when heated, so please clean your grill pan regularly.
To avoid a fire and to keep your family safe, clean your grill after you have used it. This can help to prevent a nasty fire that could cause damage to your home, or worse still it could cost you your life.
