New fire safety campaign to help West Sussex residents stay safe

A new smoke alarm campaign has been launched by West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service, encouraging residents to fit their homes with working alarms and linked detectors.

Chief Fire Officer, Sabrina Cohen-Hatton, said: “The reality is that no-one is exempt from experiencing a fire. Accidents can, and will, happen all the time – and they can happen to you. Therefore, it’s important to make sure you’re as prepared as you can be by getting your house fitted with smoke alarms.”

The campaign, which runs until mid-May, comes as a sad result of the fire service attending four fatal fires between December and March this year.
