Tip 8: Take the time to check on elderly relatives and neighbours this Christmas, make sure they are fire safe

Look out for elderly relatives and neighbours over the festive period.

Year on year, the festive and New Year period sees a peak in deaths and injuries resulting from house fires. Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service offers a free service that can help protect those people most at risk. Many of us know a friend, relative or neighbour, often someone living alone, who could be vulnerable to a fire.

You can help us prevent fire deaths and injuries by making sure that you or someone you know gets a home fire safety visit.
