Safety steps

Rutherglen Reformer - - Chef’s Corner -

Fire fight­ers are team­ing-up with an or­gan­i­sa­tion work­ing to re­duce al­co­hol- re­lated harm among the over-50s in a bid to pre­vent fires and the tragedies that can fol­low.

Scot­tish Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice ( SFRS) of­fi­cers re­cent l y re­ceived an aware­ness pre­sen­ta­tion from Drink Wise Age Well and in re­turn fire fight­ers will pro­vide its staff with haz­ard aware­ness train­ing, help­ing them recog­nise fire risks within their clients’ homes.

A re­fer­ral process will al­low Drink Wise Age Well staff to alert SFRS to some­one who may be at risk. SFRS of­fi­cers can then con­tact the per­son to of­fer them a free home fire safety visit.
