Christmas fire safety advice

Have your say

LINCOLNSHIRE Fire and Rescue are offering some advice to keep you safe this Christmas.

Festive traditions such as cooking Christmas dinner, decorating the home and enjoying a tipple all have the potential for disaster, if straightforward precautions aren’t taken.

Last December, 41 Lincolnshire house fires were started by cooking and electrical appliances, resulting in 22 injuries.

The fire brigade is giving the gift of advice, which includes keeping an eye on cooking and candles, switching off fairy lights at bedtime and not overloading plug sockets.
