Fire Strike – 25 February

Please take extra care during the 24 hour fire strike from 7am 25 Feb to 7am 26 Feb.

Kent Fire and Rescue Service will continue to answer and deal with 999 calls and will have crews at locations across the county to provide the best cover possible. However they will not be operating their normal level of service so it is important everyone takes extra care during this strike. If we can all take a few extra minutes to do a few safety checks we really can help reduce unnecessary calls and prevent fires in our homes and businesses.

More information on our website including:

  • Most home fires start in the kitchen – for example, when someone is distracted or falls asleep, leaving a pan on the hob.
  • Before you leave the house and before you go to bed check around your home that everything is turned off
  • Many KFRS calls are to rescue people from road crashes please take extra care on the road – speed really can kill
  • If you run a business please review your risk plans and make extra checks during the strike
