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.
Halloween and Bonfire Safety
With celebrations for Halloween and Bonfire Night fast approaching, we are joining with North Wales Police to urge people to 'Be a Nice Guy' with Operation BANG.
As part of this campaign, a variety of Halloween and bonfire activities will be taking place thoughout North Wales to engage with young people.
Every year, countless people risk being injured or burnt in the run up to the bonfire season when lighting bonfires and setting off fireworks.
Remember it is illegal to sell fireworks to anyone under the age of eighteen years old, and many types of fireworks are banned from sale to the public. Throwing fireworks in a public place is also illegal – and can incur a fine of up to £5,000
Our advice to the public is to stay safe and attend organised events - they provide the best entertainment, value for money and also ensure that families no longer need to put themselves at risk from the dangers of back-garden bonfire and firework parties.
