Don’t Let Fire Ruin Festive Cheer this Christmas


Date: 10th December, 2019

Christmas dinner, wrapping presents, decorating your home – there’s lots to think about this Christmas. But one thing Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service and the national Fire Kills campaign are 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. This is why Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service is asking people to take extra care over the festive season to ensure that their families and loved ones are protected from fire.

Prevention Delivery manager Ian Hopkins says: “Christmas is a time for festive cheer with family and friends. But fairy lights, candles and decorations mean 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.”

From everyone at Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service we wish you all a very happy and safe Christmas.

Here are some simple tips from the Fire Kills campaign to help you and your family enjoy the joys of Christmas safely:
