Dear all.


In the present position the nation finds itself, many people are requested to stay at home as much as possible.


It is a sad statistic that generally the more time that people stay at home, the greater risk of a fire in the home. People need to stay vigilant and take precautions to make their home a safer place. North Wales Fire Service have always offered free advice to residents and normally undertake Home Visits to offer this advice. However, this has now been restricted under the present crisis.


Therefore, please take care, stay safe and I provide a useful advice sheet that covers the main points.
