The Different Ways to Contact the Police

From Monday 31 July Sussex Police are launching a Contact Campaign to let the public know the different ways they can contact us depending on their need.

Over the coming weeks, the public is being reminded they should call 101, report online or seek an alternative option, when there isn’t a crime in progress or risk to life.  A revised contact card bespoke to each district will be available and shared not just in a downloadable electronic format, but as a postcard that people will be able to pick up in public areas and at events so they can pin it up at home for easy reference.

Winter Safety Information from the Fire Service

Welcome winter safely: extinguish the risk of a fire!

As temperatures reach their coldest and we’re spending most of our time indoors, there is an increased risk of fire in the home.

Some people, especially the elderly, can become vulnerable during the winter, as they struggle to stay warm.

However, there are some simple things everyone can do to help them stay safe this winter.

Heating the home

• Keep heaters away from curtains and furniture and never use them for drying clothes.
• Always unplug electric heaters when you go out or go to bed.

Using an electric blanket

• Carry out a visual check of the blanket to make sure the blanket is intact with no visible signs of damage caused in transport when first purchased.
• Read and follow the manufacturer's instructions before use.

• Use the blanket whilst it is still folded, rucked or creased.
• Use if there is damage to the flexible cord between the supply plug and the control to the blanket.

Smoke alarms

Smoke alarms are the best way to alert you if there is a fire in your home and allow you to get out in good time. Test your smoke alarm weekly, to ensure that it is still working efficiently.

Recommend a Home Safety Visit

West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service is urging everyone – particularly the friends, family and neighbours of older people – to recommend a free Home Safety Visit.

A Home Safety Visit involves firefighters visiting people in their home to give them fire safety advice, discuss escape routes and fit smoke alarms and other specialist detection equipment free of charge.

To request a Home Safety Visit call 0845 872 9719 or visit www.westsussex.gov.uk/fire
