Mid & West Wales Fire & Rescue Service.
When a fire breaks out it spreads so quickly that by the time the Fire and Rescue Service arrives it is often too late. The same can be said for Road Traffic Collisions, once the collision has occurred the damage has been done. The most effective way of protecting people from the effects of accidents and emergencies is to prevent the incidents happening in the first place.
As a Fire & Rescue Service we therefore focus on giving free safety education to all members of the public. We are especially looking to provide this advice to the higher risk groups within our communities. These are predominantly the elderly, those living alone, single parents, people with mental health issues, the disabled, young & older drivers.
