The Importance Of Installing Fire Doors

In total the Brigade attended 99 incidents on 5 November, 36 of which were fires. There were 26 deliberate bonfires compared to 48 on Bonfire Night last year. Cleveland Fire Brigade figures 5 November 2014 2015 %+/- Total Incidents162 99 -38.9 Fires 75 36 -52.0 Deliberate Secondary Fires (grassland/refuse)69 31 -55.1 Bonfire-related fires48 26 -45.8 Phil Lancaster, Director of Community Protection with Cleveland Fire Brigade, said: Our staff coped very well last night from managing the calls to our control centre, to assessing the dangers of each bonfire we were notified of, to the crews out and about dealing with incidents. Were pleased to see a reduction in overall incidents including deliberate bonfires and want to thank the public for helping keep bonfire night safe this year. As we move towards the weekend we want to remind people to be safe and the best way to do that is to attend an organised display. If people must buy fireworks for use at home we would urge them to only buy ones which comply with British Standard BS7114 and to please follow the Firework Code. This is not only for their safety but for that of their family and friends as well. The Brigade is also issuing a reminder that only adults should set off fireworks and parents should make their children aware of the dangers of playing with them. The Firework Code Keep fireworks in a closed box Follow the instructions on each firework Light all fireworks at arms length Stand well back Never go back to a lit firework Never put fireworks in your pocket Never throw fireworks Do not drink alcohol if setting off fireworks. If anyone has any information about arson or anti-social behaviour in their area, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or the Police on 101.

Various agencies work hard to prevent unnecessary deaths but Public Health England are hoping to save even more lives through a new partnership with fire and rescue services. Greater Manchester is one of three services chosen to support the health and social care system by promoting public health and preventative health care when visiting people in their homes. The service already visits over 60,000 homes each year to fit smoke alarms and provide fire safety advice but now firefighters will also use the opportunity to give advice on falls prevention, cold homes, social isolation and flu inoculations. They will take action or refer residents onto other health and social care services, including those provided by voluntary sector organisations such as Age UK. These checks will be known as Safe and Well visits, and will also see firefighters taking action and giving advice on health and crime prevention issues, as well as traditional fire safety measures. Chairman of Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Authority, Councillor David Acton, said: Over the last 10 years we have seen accidental fires fall dramatically as a result of the early intervention our staff have carried out by providing fire safety advice and fitting smoke alarms. If we have the opportunity to make a bigger impact while we visit homes, by looking for obvious ways to keep people safe during winter or safe from crime, then why wouldnt we? We know we have unique access to a large number of homes, many are the same people who are at high risk of winter-related illnesses, so it makes sense to collaborate with PHE to improve the lives of residents in Greater Manchester. We want to use our skills and expertise to help save lives in other ways by working even more collaboratively with our health and social care partners. A spokesman from PHE said: Public Health England is working with the Local Government Association, NHS England, Age UK and the Chief Fire Officers Association (CFOA) to develop a shared view of how fire and rescue services can use their capacity to support the health and social care system including promoting public health and preventative health care. Fire and rescue services have seen success in reducing demand for their services by taking a preventative approach through home safety visits (or more recently, safe and well visits). Those factors that predispose someone to being at risk from fire also predispose someone to be at risk of having or developing long term and other conditions that create demand for other organisations.
