Weekly Newsletter – Staffs Fire and Rescue

Dear Parent/Carer

RE: Staffs Fire and Rescue DS

Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service would like to communicate to young people how to stay safe during the warm weather we are currently experiencing. Please talk to your children about the risks of setting grass fires and swimming in open water. The main points to cover are as follows:

 

  • 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 Staffordshire Fire and Rescue website at www.staffordshirefire.gov.ukand also on Facebook ‘Staffordshires Fire and Rescue’ and Twitter ‘@Staffsfire’.

 

Please help to keep your children safe by sharing this information with them. It is really important that they enjoy the summer safely.

 

Yours sincerely

 

D Sanders
