Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service e-Newsletter

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

Draft Five Year Strategy 2015-20

Cheshire Fire Authority has launched a new draft five year strategy, titled ‘Planning For A Safer Cheshire 2015-2020’, that sets out its plans up to 2020. The strategy clarifies some of the stark choices facing the Authority and outlines the approach and principles it will adopt to ensure it does not compromise on its commitment to protecting local communities, reducing risk and maintaining firefighters’ safety.

We would like you to get involved and have your say to help shape the future of Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service.

Cooking safety month

Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service will be promoting cooking safety tips throughout the month of February. 

There are a number of cooking related dates throughout the month including Pancake Day and National Chip Week. Our kitchen safety vehicle will be out and about in Cheshire throughout February - Find out the dates and venues of our kitchen safety roadshow

Pancake Day

Pancake Day is the day when people reach for the frying pan, lemon and sugar - but some end up needing the Fire and Rescue Service too.

When making pancakes, never leave any cooking or kitchen appliances unattended. It only takes a few seconds for an unattended pan or cooker to catch fire.

National Chip Week

Reduce the chance of having a fire in your home by throwing away your chip pan during National Chip Week (16th 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.

Chinese New Year
