We’ve asked one of our firefighters, Laura, what her Christmas wishes are.
She’s given us a list of ‘gifts’ she’d love for you to purchase. For yourself, or to give to loved ones, to help keep everyone safe from fire all year round. Here’s what she says…
9. Book a free home safety visit
One final ‘gift’ on my wish list is for you to encourage your family members (in particular, those who are vulnerable or live alone) to book in for a free home fire safety visit.
One of my lovely colleagues – a specially trained home fire safety technician – will come and visit the home and help you with some simple steps to reduce the risk of fire. They’ll also be able to advise on escape routes in the event of a fire, and help with smoke alarms and other fire safety equipment (which they’ll supply free of charge if the resident needs it).
