As part of the Dementia Safeguarding Scheme we, alongside other emergency service partners, have created a wristband to help protect and safeguard those vulnerable people with dementia in our society.
We visit the homes of the most vulnerable people in our community to help them stay safe from fire.
Working with teachers and schools is an important part of our community safety work. Our Educational Services section provides details about the services we offer.
Community Safety Centres are a free resource we provide, offering safety advice, internet access and meeting facilities to the community. We have three Community Safety Centres at our stations across the area.
The South West Command Development Centre (SWCDC) near Bath, is a high-tech centre for command training and incident simulation.
Fire hydrants play an important role in protecting our community. In the event of a fire they give firefighters access to the mains water supply, so it's important that they remain accessible at all times.
The majority of fires in the home can be avoided by some really small changes to lifestyle. We provide lots of advice and information about how you can keep you and your loved ones safe
