Fundraising for Vicki
Birchwood firefighter Vicki Griffiths recently had a serious accident in the gym, which has so far left her unable to feel or move from the waist down.
This brings Vicki a new challenge, so firefighters, staff and volunteers are fundraising to help with the cost of home and vehicle adaptations and other expenses to help her to live her life to the fullest.
Blue light open day 2017 - Ticket only event

Warning after tumble dryer recall
We are asking people to check the make of their tumble dryer after a full recall was issued by a manufacturer.
Beko has issued a safety alert about a potential fire risk of 3,450 of its condenser tumble dryers and told customers to stop using them immediately.
Drowning prevention - be water aware
Around 400 people drown in the UK every year and thousands more suffer injury, some life changing, through near-drowning experiences.
Many people that drown just happen to be near water - such as runners, walkers and fisherman.
