Staffordshire Fire & Rescue Service - Preventing, Protecting, Responding

Festive Fire Cruise Around Hanley

Firefighters in Stoke are busy spreading their own Christmas message this week.

Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service is staging a number of events across the city to raise awareness of fire safety in Winter and potential hazards in the home at Christmas.

"We are educating people to the potential dangers which lurk in the home during the Christmas period."

Tomorrow, Tuesday, residential social workers will receive specialist fire training to help them support people with behavioural problems.

On Wednesday crews from Hanley will be in the town centre handing out fire safety information to shoppers while encouraging people to sign up for Home Fire Risk Checks.

On the same day members of the Risk Reduction team will be attending a Christmas lunch for senior citizens at the Community Education Centre in Meir while on Thursday a 12 Days of Christmas safety show comes to Tunstall.

This will feature firefighters engaging the public on matters of fire safety and offering advice and information on keeping property and loved ones safe during the Festive season.

Donna Broadhead, Watch Manager at Hanley Fire Station, said: "At a busy time of year it is imperative we keep ourselves busy in this way, educating people to the potential dangers which lurk in the home during the Christmas period."
