National Fire Safety Week runs from the 1st October to the 8th October 2007. The theme of this year’s campaign is “Smoke Kills – Be Alarmed”.
Sligo Fire Service offers the following advice to all householders:
Sligo County Council through its fire service has always taken an active role in promoting fire safety events for this special week. All firefighters and senior fire officers work together to promote the fire safety message.Sligo Fire Service continues to be active in promoting fire safety in the community by organising and accommodating visits to Sligo Fire Station, school visits by the Fire Service as part of the National Community Fire Safety for Schools Programme and training staff from outside businesses on fire prevention issues.
Statistics tell us that fire deaths in the home are still very high and that it is the vulnerable groups (the young and the elderly) in our community that are most at risk. Constant vigilance is needed in relation to fire safety. ALL OF US HAVE A PART TO PLAY.
This year, the highlight of the week will be the holding of Chip Pan Fire demonstration at various locations throughout the country. The demonstration will provide communities with safety information. Members of the public are invited to attend.
Fire Safety Demonstrations will be held at the following locations;
