Welcome from the Chief Fire Officer
Electrical Safety Week
This month marks Electrical Safety Week - electrical fires are one of the biggest causes of accidental house fires in the country.
Electrical fires can happen to anyone, anywhere so our advice is to get prepared and stay safe by having a working smoke alarm fitted on every floor in your home, and ensure it is tested regularly.
Smoke alarms are the best way to give an early warning of fire in your home – yet surprisingly around 20% of incidents we are called to reveal homes that do not have a working smoke alarm.
White Goods Safety
As part electrical safety week this year, we are joining with the other two fire and rescue services in Wales to launch our White Goods Safety campaign, which focusses on keeping safe from fires involving tumble dryers, washing machines and dishwashers.
This includes registering appliances with the manufacturer, looking after them and keeping them clean, and using them safely by following the manufacturer’s guidelines.
Keep an eye out on our website and social media pages for our safety advice and videos which will be posted from the 19th of November.
Carbon Monoxide Safety
The Service is also highlighting the dangers of Carbon Monoxide poisoning this month.
Carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning can be fatal or cause permanent damage to your health.
CO is produced when carbon fuels don't burn completely - it has no smell or taste and, in large quantities, it can kill very quickly.
To help protect ourselves from CO it is important to ensure all fuel burning appliances and associated flues are maintained and serviced in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions.
Sweeping your chimney regularly and fitting an audible CO alarm will also help protect against the dangers of carbon monoxide.
