Tips to reduce fire risk for North Lincolnshire residents
RESIDENTS in North Lincolnshire are being given top tips to make their homes a safer place.
Humberside Fire and Rescue Service, in a bid to create a safer community, is asking residents to make simple changes to their daily routine.
Daryl Oprey, head of safety for Humberside Fire and Rescue Service, said: "In 2012, Humberside Fire and Rescue Service attended 506 accidental house fires and nearly 200 of those were cooking related. When cooking, I urge people to never leave it unattended, don't cook if under the influence of alcohol and ensure the cooker is turned off when you have finished.
"We are asking residents to make a change for 2013 by introducing a bedtime check into their household. If a fire breaks out, these steps can make escaping quicker and easier but ultimately, this routine can prevent a fire from happening in the first place."
