Huw Jakeway, Chief Fire Officer, South Wales Fire and Rescue Service explains;
“There is an ever increasing diversity in the communities of South Wales that has led to more celebrations and holidays where decorations and naked flames are used. Overloading of extension leads and block adaptors is common around these times to accommodate lights and extra equipment.
“During the festive season, people will have decorations, use more electrical appliances, have more visitors and may be smoking and drinking alcohol at home,”
according to CFO Huw Jakeway.
“The message from South Wales Fire and Rescue Service is to be aware of the risks, take extra care and Celebrate Safely.”
