Cheshire Fire launches sprinkler campaign


Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service is launching a year-long campaign on 1 April to raise awareness of the benefits of fitting sprinkler systems in business premises.

Led by the Business Safety team, the initiative will not only highlight the benefits sprinkler systems bring to a business, but also encourage decision makers to consider fitting sprinkler systems in all new builds, as well as the retrospective fitting of the devices in older premises.

That’s why we're urging residents to purchase alarms for their homes.
