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.

 

Switch on to home safety this Christmas

Christmas and New Year is a time to relax and enjoy being at home with family and friends - but it’s also a time when extra vigilance is vital to ensure you are safe in your home.

Earlier this month, we were called to three house fires in less than three hours on a Saturday afternoon. Although the festive period is a time for celebration, we know that the number of incidents we attend over Christmas can rise significantly. On top of this, the latest figures show that many residents in Wales still do not have a smoke alarm – it’s easy to see that these two statistics combined are a potential recipe for disaster.

Our firefighters have seen first-hand how a working smoke alarm could save you in the event of a fire – it could really mean the difference between life and death.

In our experience, people who lose their lives in house fires are often sleeping at the time. A smoke alarm will wake you up and give you that vital extra time to make your escape and to call for help.
