St Helens Star: Firefighters launch safety campaign Firefighters launch safety campaign

MORE than 400 properties are being targeted as part of the home fire safety campaigns across St Helens, Newton-le-Willows and Eccleston.

Crews will head into communities next week as part of a new national campaign to highlight the importance of working smoke alarms.

It is part of work linking into the Chief Fire Officers Association UK Home Safety Week.

On Sunday, March 23, firefighters and community fire prevention staff will visit properties across St Helens in a home fire safety campaign.

Fire prevention officers will give presentations to pupils at St Julie’s Catholic Primary School in St Helens, Rivington Primary School and Cowley International College.

Home fire safety campaigns involving firefighters will also take place in Newton-le-Willows on Wednesday, March 26, and Eccleston on Monday, March 24.

This is going to put a serious dent in their ping pong tournament . They will have to reduce the number of rounds.
A working smoke alarm simply gets you out of a burning building, it doesn't stop the building burning in the first place. Perhaps lessons in how to use chip pans would be more appropriate in these areas.?
