Learn more about Safe and Well at fire service events

March 9 2018

Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service is holding Safe and Well events at fire stations around the county.

 

We want to make sure that residents know that the Safe and Well visits and advice are not being reduced but are targeted so that all individuals get the right help for them.

Strategic Partnership Lead Paul Sahw

The Community Awareness Days will help explain the changes the Service has made to Safe and Well visits while giving safety advice and gifting smoke alarms to those who don’t have them. 

Each event will run from 9am until 4pm and are being held at Cannock Community Fire Station on March 19, Lichfield Community Fire Station on April 3 and Hanley Community Fire Station on April 5. 

Community Support Officers will be on hand for residents to ask any questions on the new format of the Safe and Well and will arrange for a member of the Community Advice Team to book visits for those who meet the criteria. Those who do not will still receive a tailored information pack with everything they need to stay safe in their homes. 

Paul Shaw said: “We want to make sure that residents know that the Safe and Well visits and advice are not being reduced but are targeted so that all individuals get the right help for them. 

“This is a great opportunity for us engage with the community and for the public to speak to us about any concerns they have about fire safety and wellbeing. 

“Although the way we are delivering Safe and Well is changing it will allow us to give the right advice to the right people and target the most vulnerable people within the community and we hope these events will help people understand what it is we are doing and what is available to them.”
