Wirral Fire Stations 'Safe Havens'

Fire stations across Wirral have signed up to the 'Safe Havens' initiative.

The project was started in London after 16 year old Jimmy Mizen was murdered after an oven dish was thrown at him in a bakery, with a shard of glass cutting blood vessels in his neck.

Anyone who is feeling threatened, intimidated or at risk can now go to any community fire station on the Wirral.

Deputy Chief Fire Officer Phil Garrigan said: "Our firefighters are experienced in dealing with the public at traumatic times and are highly training in first aid and trauma care.

"This initiative allows us to ensure we are best able to serve our communities no matter what the circumstances."

If firefighters aren't in the station, people can call for help on the yellow station phone at the front of the building.
