Welcome to the September edition of the Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service e-Newsletter.
Cheshire fire chiefs celebrate safety law success
Fire chiefs are celebrating after the Government approved new safety regulations which are expected to save dozens of lives a year. This follows a major campaign spearheaded by Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service.
The regulations - which make it compulsory for all landlords to fit smoke alarms in rented homes - follows a high profile campaign led by a team from Cheshire and supported by the Chief Fire Officers’ Association (CFOA).
Partnership award for Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service
Cheshire is one of three fire and rescue services to have received an award in recognition of their partnership work to reduce health inequalities.
Cheshire, Merseyside and West Midlands Fire and Rescue Services were all awarded Marmot Partnership Status following their efforts to improve the social circumstances and health of individuals living in their communities.
Penketh Fire Station is a step closer
Cheshire Fire Authority is a step closer to realising its ambition of a safer Cheshire after appointing the company to build Penketh’s new station. Members of the Authority awarded the contract to ISG Plc at their Policy and Overview Committee.
ISG, an international construction services company, is due to start construction of the fire station later this month. The lightweight steel frame structure, will include a green sedum roof to complement the station’s location and enhance the building’s sustainable credentials.
Bonfire Night - list of organised bonfires in Cheshire
Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service would like to encourage residents to attend an organised bonfire this year, because most injuries throughout the bonfire period occur as a result of people building their own bonfires, and setting off their own fireworks.
If you would like to add a community bonfire to the list on our website, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Fire Station open days
Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service fire stations will be holding free fire station open days over the next couple of months.
Find out about your local fire station - where it is, what open days or special events they are holding and how to get in contact with them.
