Station update - September 2015

Red watch Didcot were invited to the Women’s institute to talk about fire safety and chimney fires, the ladies were very impressed with our talk and even had a go spraying water in the car park.

An eldely lady holding a fire hose spraying water watched by a firefighter and several more elderly ladies.

Red watch also helped out with a display at Sainsbury’s in conjunction with the Chimney Fire Safety Week giving out safety leaflets and answering questions regarding chimney safety.    

Stay safe and warm

A roaring fire may be a welcoming site on a cold day but only if it is contained within the grate where it should be.

Don’t overload your fire place, make sure embers are under control and put out properly before you go out or to bed and use a British Standard fire guard to prevent sparks escaping.
