Each year fire-fighters in Wales attend over 2,000 accidental fires in the home. Most people can change something about their daily routine or simple things around the home to reduce their chances of having an accidental fire.
By calling 0800 169 1234 you can arrange for a representative from your local Fire and Rescue Service to visit your home. During their visit they will be able to provide advice on what you should do in the event of a fire and suggest escape plans suitable for your home. Advice may also be given on issues such as cooking and smoking safely at home if needed. Most importantly if you do not already have smoke alarms they will be supplied and fitted for you free of charge.
