Welcome from the Chief Fire Officer
Making every contact count
We are committed to protecting our communities as a whole, and working with our partners to keep people safe and well.
As part of this, we support the making every contact count (MECC) initiative through our work every day.
MECC is an approach to behaviour change that utilises the millions of day to day interactions that organisations and people have with other people to encourage changes in behaviour that have a positive effect on the health and wellbeing of individuals, communities and populations.
Our commitment to MECC means that all fire and rescue service staff make the most of every opportunity possible to engage in a conversation that may support someone to take healthier choices.
More information on the various agencies we signpost to is available here.
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 to keep you and your family safe.
Cooking and drinking simply don’t mix
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.
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.
