4:10pm Tuesday 10th September 2013 in News
MAKE sure your chimney is ready for the winter blues.
Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service are using Chimney Fire Safety Week to remind businesses and residents to ensure that their chimney is ready to sustain the winter.
It is important that you clean chimneys regularly to prevent fire in the home or business places and everyone is being reminded this week as part of the event.
Service delivery manager Alex Waller said: “Last year we had 128 chimney fires in Cheshire. These fires can lead to widespread damage of a property.
“In order to keep you and your family safe from fire, you need to take necessary steps such as ensuring your chimney is swept regularly, depending upon what fuel you burn and I would urge all householders to have a working smoke alarm in their home.”
