SFRS Fire Safety During the Cost of Living Crisis

Published: March 28, 2023


The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) wants to make sure that everyone stays fire-safe during the period of financial difficulty related to the cost of living crisis.

Their safety advice includes:

  • never use camping stoves and barbeques indoors
  • always use the correct fuel in a wood burning stove and in open fires.
  • do not use a chimney that has not been checked for blockages
  • use candles safely, or ideally, use LED lights and torches instead
  • if using an old or unfamiliar heater, get it checked for safety first

People can also register for a FREE Home Fire Safety Visit online (linked for your convenience).
