thought id post this after a recent comment on here, i don’t know if someone has already shown you guys this but its something everyone should know about.
Its a FREE Home Fire Safety Check that the Fireservice offers
i know it sounds scary but please read more
This is a service where the Fire Service will come out to your house to fit/replace the old ones you already have for the new improved ones that are now on the market.
They also offer other service e.g for the blind they can get vibrating pillows once the fire alarms are set, for the deaf lights that flash when they are triggered.
they also replace "old" deep fat fryers for the new thermostatic ones if required, they will also answer any questions you may have.
all you need to do is call them on 0800 169 1234
(now i aint sure if this is just the North Wales number, but they can still sort you out as they will pass on the details to the required service) but if you want to save them the time you could easily Google for you local service’s contact number.
Or you can go online and most of the local Fire Services have their own websites which you can send your details to them and they will call you back to arrange a date that is convenient for you.
This a call that we were first on scene a few months ago that made national news
Mabey if they would of heard of this service maybe things would have been different
If you could pass this on to mates/family/friends it would be great as I personally think most people underestimate how important a smoke detector is to save life and takes all of 10mins to fit, but please be nice and offer the Firefighters a brew we all enjoy a good brew.
