Welcome from the Chief Fire Officer

So many good reasons to test your smoke alarm

We have recently teamed up with visual effects students from Wrexham Glyndŵr University and North Wales based singer songwriter Daniel Lloyd to commission and produce an original short animation to further highlight the importance of regularly testing smoke alarms.

The ‘Reasons to Test’ video features a crew of quirky characters going about their daily routines, accompanied by an original catchy soundtrack – it’s featured on our website and social media sites with accompanying radio adverts.

The video promotes the many good reasons to test your smoke alarm regularly – many people think they will never be involved in a fire but we are all too aware that fire can strike any time, anywhere and testing your smoke alarm to make sure it works really could save your life.

Take a look help us to spread this important message – like, share and retweet the video on our Facebook page and Twitter feed #ReasonsToTest.

 

Be a safe cook!

More fires start in the kitchen than in any other room in the home. For this reason, I’m appealing to all residents to keep an eye on your cooking and avoid drunken disasters at the stove.

The six nations rugby tournament kicked off this month, and with many fans enjoying the game over a few pints in the pub or a couple of cans in the comfort of their armchair, I feel it’s timely for me to issue an important reminder about the dangers of cooking after drinking.

Time and time again our firefighters are called to house fires in the region which have started after residents have become distracted in the kitchen or have lost concentration after a drink, with serious and sometimes tragic consequences.

 

Cooking and drinking simply don’t mix

Remember, cooking and drinking simply don’t mix – you can avoid a recipe for disaster by making yourself a sandwich before enjoying a drink or simply getting a take away instead. This really could save your life.

Also, with important dates like Valentines Day, National Chip Week and Shrove Tuesday this month, I know that many of you will be hoping to demonstrate your cooking skills.
