Summer Safety Message For Families (03.07.18)
Summer Safety Message For Families
Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service would like to communicate to children and families how to stay safe during the warm weather we are currently experiencing. We have been talking to children in school about the following issues and would appreciate parents doing so also.
- Deliberately setting grass fires is a crime. It could result in a prison sentence or a £5000 fine.
- Grass fires are very dangerous as they can quickly spread and get out of control.
- Deliberate grass fires can also put both firefighters and members of the public at needless risk of injury.
- When enjoying the outdoors put rubbish in a nearby bin or take it home.
- Open water can be dangerous. There may be unseen dangers including the risk of waterborne disease. Cold water shock can kill within one minute of being in the water. Only swim at lifeguarded pools
More safety information can be found on the following website at www.staffordshirefire.gov.uk and we are also on Facebook ‘Staffordshires Fire and Rescue’ and Twitter ‘@Staffsfire’.
Please help to keep your child safe by sharing this information with them. It is really important that we all enjoy the summer safely.
