Bonfire Safety Guidelines from West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service

We want everyone to be able to safely enjoy Halloween, Diwali and Bonfire Night across West Yorkshire this year, that’s why we have re-launched our #BanginBonfire campaign.

Our #BanginBonfire campaign helps to make sure everyone has the information they need to enjoy Bonfire Night safely.

We are working with our community safety partners, including local schools and the West Yorkshire Police, to urge communities across the region to do their bit this autumn.

Let’s all have a bangin’ bonfire night!

Fire safety for Child Safety Week

wyf fire serviceChild Safety Week is the annual campaign run by the Child Accident Prevention Trust which takes place this week and West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service is supporting the campaign using striking graphics which illustrate the dangers youngsters can face in the home and great outdoors.

Firefighters are also visiting schools during the week to speak directly to pupils, their teachers and parents about how to keep safe – especially as the school holidays are just around the corner.

Since the turn of the millennium, 118 youngsters have been injured in fires across West Yorkshire started by chip pans and 92 more have been injured by other cooking-related fires.
