Our new vision
Fire Safety is especially important during the Winter. Your local Fire and Rescue service will carry out a free home fire safety check for you and fit smoke alarms if you do not already have them. Call them on 0800 169 1234 for more information.
For more information download Fire Safety in the Home a useful leaflet produced by Fire Flash who promote fire safety in Wales.
Incorrectly installed, poorly maintained or poorly ventilated heating and cooking equipment which runs on fossil fuels (gas, oil, coal or wood) can give off carbon monoxide - an invisible, odourless toxic gas which kills more than 50 people a year in England and Wales. Low levels of carbon monoxide can cause serious harm to your health if breathed in over a long time.
For more information, download the Welsh Government leaflet for more information.
You can't smell it, you can't see it and it can kill! To find out more about carbon monoxide safety, call the Health and Safety Executive Gas Safety Advice Line on 0800 300 363 8am-8pm, Mon-Fri and 10am-4pm, Saturdays or visit Health and Safety Executive
Call for Help is a guide to contacting organisations in emergencies, or if other help is needed. The guide includes contact numbers for electricity, gas and water services, as well as for flooding information and general advice from Age Cymru.
