South Staffordshire Fire & Rescue Service are holding a Community Safety Event on Wednesday 11th May, 10am to 4pm in Sainsbury’s Car Park, Anders Square, Perton.
Local officers and PCSOs will be offering advice on home security, property marking, cycle security and you can discuss any other concerns you may be having.
There will be fire officers on hand to talk about free home safety checks and smoke alarms.
You will also be able to find out more about forthcoming changes to housing benefits and the local work clubs from South Staffordshire Council’s Housing Benefit Team.
When a crisis or emergency happens you know when you dial 999 we’ll respond. However, what most people don’t realise is that part of our job is to prevent accidents before they happen.
Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service undertake a number of activities, all aimed at making our Staffordshire communities safer and stronger. We know that responding to emergencies is our first duty but we also recognise we can help prevent fires in the home and at work – so hopefully you’ll never need to dial 999.
We run a number of services designed to inform and help members of the community to protect their homes and business premises. Whether it’s educating children or raising awareness of road safety among drivers, we know that what we do can have a significant impact – reducing risk and saving lives.
