Fire warning visit to school

SCHOOLCHILDREN in Langley Mill will be among those to be visited by fire safety officers.

Pam Thindal, from Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service, who is co-ordinating the campaign said: “We have booked in a series of chip pan demonstrations at local schools and children’s centres to try and instil safety messages and to get people thinking about what steps they can take to make themselves and their families safer.

“We hope that people will make changes to their daily routine as a result.”

The Chip Pan Demonstration team will be going to Langley Mill Juniors, on Bailey Brook Drive, on Tuesday, June 14.

“Chip pan safety is still a major part of our safety in the home campaign coupled with our ongoing, ‘Question Your Perception’ of fire initiative,” added Pam.

“Many accidents in the home could be prevented by taking a second look to make sure that children are not in danger from cooking, candles, overloaded sockets or other ‘accidents waiting to happen’ in the home.”

The team are visiting schools and children’s centres in the run up to Child Safety Week which runs from from June 20 to June 26 to spread the word.
