Don’t Let Fire Ruin Festive Cheer this Christmas


Date: 1st December, 2017

Christmas dinner, wrapping presents, decorating your home – there’s lots to think about this Christmas. But one thing Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service (DWFRS) is urging residents to put top of their Christmas lists this year, is fire safety.

While fire safety is vital throughout the year, the extra distractions of Christmas make it especially important to be vigilant during the festive season. This is why DWFRS is asking people to take extra care over the festive season to ensure that their families and loved ones are protected from fire.

Safe & Well Manager, Vikki Thomas said: “Christmas is a time for festive cheer with family and friends. But fairy lights, candles and decorations means it is also a time to take extra care to keep our loved ones safe from fire”

To ensure you have the merriest of Christmases, keep fire safety at the top of your list. Ensure you place candles in suitable holders and away from curtains, never leave cooking unattended and, of course, test your smoke alarms.

“The colder weather brings its own menaces too.  Take care when using portable heaters or open fires to keep warm.”

To help keep everybody safe this Christmas, DWFRS has put together the following tips.
