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.


Chimney Safety

Autumn has arrived and this month we’re encouraging residents to keep basic fire safety advice in mind before lighting their fires for the first time.

Most chimney fires are preventable – but our firefighters were called to 151 chimney fires last year.

We have seen a reduction in the number of chimney fires we have attended over the last two years and it is good to see that the long lasting fire safety messages we promoted were effective.

Again, this year we would like to remind the public about the importance of keeping yourself and your family safe by reducing the risk of fires.
