When Euro 2016 starts, Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service would like to urge residents to play it safe

Play it safe in your kitchen

  • Don’t leave cookers or grills unattended.

  • Keep tea towels and cloths away from the cooker and hob.

  • Double check the cooker is off when you've finished cooking.

  • Complete our online home safety check and you will get a personalised fire safety plan, which will offer advice on how to prevent fires in your home:  Do the online home safety check.

Play it safe on the roads

If you are driving, stay on top of your game. 

  • Don't drink and drive -  if you go out to watch the football and plan to have a drink, please leave your car at home.

  • Beware, you may still be over the limit the morning after a drinking session.
