Written by Hitmix Local News on 6 February 2024
Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service are issuing a safety reminder to people across the county to take extra precautions when using chimneys following two separate incidents recently, one in Newcastle and one in Leek. Both fires were quickly extinguished and, thankfully, no one was injured.
Station Manager Mark Tattum said: “Accidental fires caused by people heating their homes are more commonplace over the winter period, and that’s why we’re urging residents to make sure they’re aware of the risks and how they can prevent them.
Staffordshire Fire and Rescue is reminding residents across Staffordshire to Be Warm, Be Safe. With household costs such as rent, food and energy bills rising you may be looking at ways to save money and cheaper ways to heat your home this winter. Their message is, don’t make cuts when it comes to fire safety.
