Chief Fire Officer's fund-raising weekend
Chief Fire Officer Frank Swann will be cycling 185 miles round all 24 Nottinghamshire fire stations in one weekend to raise money for The Fire Fighters Charity, and a range of other fund-raising events will be taking place the same weekend.
Events at fire stations across the county will include a 'Junior Firefighter Experience', a coffee morning, a cycle safety day and car washes.
While 86% of houses in England now have a smoke alarm, not all of them have enough smoke alarms for the size of the house or have them in the right place. You should have at least one on every level and they should be positioned in halls, on landings or near rooms with a potential fire risk, but not in kitchens or bathrooms, where steam could set them off. If your home is one of the 14% without an alarm, get as many as your home needs and fit them as soon as possible.
