Save Safely!

With winter rain and chills sweeping in and people starting to think about different ways to save money, East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service (ESFRS) has launched a new safety drive – Save Safely.

They have gathered together a few ideas to consider. Not only could these save people a few pennies, they will help reduce the chances of a fire which in itself can be expensive, disruptive and distressing.

  • Switch off at night!  If you’re asleep you are much less likely to spot a small problem (smoke coming from a socket) before it becomes a fire. Before you go to bed, or go out, check the living room, the kitchen, home office, your bedroom and so on and switch off! You can save energy this way too!
  • Close doors. It’s amazing how much heat can disappear out the door, and by keeping doors shut, you also reduce the chance of fires spreading from room to room.
  • Check out the support available. Did you know the Service can also help with free advice, specialist safety equipment and even smoke alarms?

ESFRS can also provide posters and postcards to share.

When their specially trained Safe and Well advisors carry out one of their free home safety visits, they can also offer advice on this as well as general advice on home safety, including the reduction of accidental injury and identifying health and wellbeing need.  They will also fit smoke alarms and other specialist equipment when needed.

You can get in touch with ESFRS via email at or if you have any questions.
