When Did You Last Check Your Smoke Alarm?

If you live in Wales, your local fire and rescue service is offering you a FREE smoke alarm and installation service. This home fire safety check will help to keep you safe from fire.

Statistics show that you are six times more likely to die from a fire in the home if you do not have a smoke alarm. Can you afford to take this risk?

The FREE home fire safety check visit takes about 20 minutes and will be arranged at your convenience. Fully trained fire and rescue service staff, who always carry an identification card, will

• Supply and install lifesaving, free home smoke detectors or ensure that your existing alarms are in working order
• Provide advice on how to make your home safe from fire
• Help you prepare an escape plan to assist you and your family in safely making your way out of the property in the event of fire
• Provide specialised equipment for deaf and hard of hearing people
• Assess whether you are at high risk and may benefit from specialist equipment to help keep you safe

All of the above are FREE of charge and you can simply:
• Visit and fill in the online form
• Call us on 0800 169 1234 at any time of the day or night to register
• Text 88365, prefixing the message with the word HFSC

Road Safety Week 2016

Brake is encouraging educators to register for Road Safety Week (taking place in November). Educators can link activities to this theme or any road safety topic. Brake will be encouraging families to consider how they use roads, and if they can switch to walking, cycling or using public transport as much as possible. Educators can engage pupils in exploring benefits of sustainable and active travel and opportunities for their family to get around this way. Teaching road safety and active, sustainable travel in their classroom can help to meet goals of compulsory curriculum subjecs such as science and geography, and also meet goals as part of  a citizenship agenda.

Road crashes are the biggest cause of death among young people, and there is increasing acknowledgement of the threat traffic pollution and sedentary lifestyles pose to children and families. Raising awareness of road safety and creating safe spaces for sustainable and active travel is vital.

REGISTER NOW! Brake is urging educators to register to take part in the Week and receive support and free e-mail action pack resources available from brake.
