DURING WINTER PLEASE BE AWARE OF BLACK ICE
Winter brings its own specific dangers to our region and black ice on our roads is one of the most severe. We are called to every major road accident, and on extremely cold mornings we should be very alert to the dangers of black ice.

ONLY A WORKING SMOKE ALARM SAVES LIVES
Only the sound of a smoke alarm, not the smell of smoke, will wake you in a fire, so it’s essential that all of the smoke alarms in your home are tested on a regular basis. It also makes safe-sense change your smoke alarm batteries every year.
