KENT Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice is urg­ing res­i­dents to stay safe this Christ­mas and en­sure that the fes­tive pe­riod is an en­joy­able one. Ash­ford fire sta­tion man­ager Phil Rice, said: “Dan­gers in­clude care­less dis­posal of smok­ing ma­te­ri­als, unat­tended cook­ing, over­load­ing of elec­tric sock­ets with dec­o­ra­tive lights and care­less use of can­dles.” He is urg­ing peo­ple to book up for a free home safety visit. It will take about 30 min­utes to carry out and fire­fight­ers will visit homes to iden­tify po­ten­tial fire haz­ards and fit if re­quired free 10-year smoke alarms. They will give safety ad­vice and help you make an es­cape plan should fire break out.
