Making Sure Your Children Are Safe?

More than four hundred fire safety visits have taken place in Plymouth at schools and nurseries in the city

It's to cut down the potential loss of life and injuries if a fire did occur.

Fire officers offer clear and practical advice to owners unsure of the latest fire regulations or they just want advice on how to improve fire safety at their premices.

They look at labels, risk assessments, number of exit points and the location of the master control.
