June 2021 eNewsletter – FiRELiNK

Welcome to the June edition of the Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service e-Newsletter.

Be Water Aware

Cooling off in rivers, canals, ponds, quarries and lakes can have deadly consequences.

We’re urging people, particularly children and teenagers, not to swim anywhere other than in purpose-built and supervised swimming pools unless they are members of an organised swimming group.

If you spot someone in trouble in the water, please 999 to call us.

Countryside fire safety advice

Grass fires can get out of hand very quickly, cause extensive damage and put lives at risk.

They can also last for several days once a fire takes hold using up valuable Fire Service resources which could be needed elsewhere.
