Get tips on how to keep kids out of harm's way
The borough’s health visitors and officers from the local fire service will be at children’s centres across the borough during the week giving information on keeping children safe.
Parents and carers are welcome to just turn up and get advice and leaflets.
Wandsworth Council will be working with Wandsworth firefighters over the coming months to highlight fire hazards in the home.
This will include campaigns to encourage families to draw up escape plans in the case of a fire, and information on how to get, and check, smoke alarms.
The Fire Brigade will pay you a visit at home to provide free fire safety advice, and may fit a free smoke alarm. Book a visit online or call 0800 028 4428.
All the borough’s year 5 pupils learn about common hazards, including fire, by acting out scenarios at the Junior Citizen Scheme. Read more
