fire safety christmas campaign

Today i visited with the Mayor the Wrexham fire station to launch the christmas fire safety campaign.
We were told that during the night there had been a serious fire in the stair well of a block of flats at Bryn Hafod Caia Park.
we were told by fire officers that the cause of the fire was a old sofa being left in the stair well, awaiting disposal . Some one then decided to set light to this sofa.There were twelve people living in the six flats and fortunately there were no serious injuries or deaths due to the existing smoke alarms and the response of the fire service to rescue those in the flats.

Safer schools

As the vice chair of the North Wales Fire Authority, you could say I have a personal interest. I have experienced the devastation fire at a school can cause to the school, its pupils and the community. Fortunately this fire at Ysgol Y gaer happened at night, if a fire did occur during the school day I dread to think of the consequence's. This why I am pressing Wrexham Council to adopt a policy of installing sprinklers in all our schools and especially the new and refurbished schools that we are intending to work on in the coming years.
sprinkler are so essential to help save life . This is so important not only in our schools but also in our homes and workplaces.
To start the ball rolling I have ask the council to give a report on why we do not intend to install sprinklers in the new Rhos schools, I await that report with interest.

I had the pleasure to visit the Royal Court warden controlled flats at Bickerton drive gwersyllt yesterday. It was the official opening by the Mayor Cllr George James of the building following the refurbishment. i was really impressed to see how the accommodation had changed and how some flats have been converted into accommodation for rest bite care and people coming out of hospital as a transitional care facility before going home.
I would like express my thanks to all the officers who worked so hard to make this a resource that the local authority and the health people can use for the benefit of our communities.
following that event i attended, a workshop where councillors were agreeing our priorities for the next year and providing care for older people in their homes was one that we have agreed for a few years however having visited Royal Court I felt that it should state that our priority should be amended to say PROVIDING CARE FOR OLDER PEOPLE IN A HOME OF THEIR CHOICE.

I was at wrexham fire station last night to witness the presentation of two cheques to the total value of£5520 that was raised by the retained fire fighters through the sponsored 10 mile walk through the town center a couple weeks ago.
congratulations to those firefighters from wrexham,llangollen,johnstown and mold fire stations who took part in this walk wearing full firefighting kit plus breathing apparatus and a special thanks to watch manager and his crew for organising the event, as a fire authority member it never ceases to amaze me the commitment of our fire fighters in our community.
the recipients of this money are the shooting star unit,the testicular cancer fund at ysbyty glan clwyd and the fire services national benevolent fund.
