Staffordshire Fire & Rescue Service - Preventing, Protecting, Responding

Winter Safety

snow in fields

Winter is a lovely time of year but it can also prove to be a dangerous time for some and a busy time for Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service. Staying warm in the home safely is very important, as is driving safely in the ice and snow. We also want you to celebrate safely during the festive period and stay safe around frozen bodies of water. Winter can be particularly tough for older people so please check on elderly neighbours, friends and relatives.

Follow the links below for more information about how to make your winter a safe and happy one.
