Watch Commander Steve Love and his FIRE team visit our Birtley Residents

Watch Commander Steve Love and his FIRE team visit Birtley Residents

We were fortunate enough this week to have a visit from our local Guildford Fire Station, where the Watch Commander Steve Love and a few members from his brigade, spent time with our residents, giving an up to date talk on ‘fire safety’ and the important job that is done by a fire door, hence they should remain shut. We’re all aware that by law Health and Safety checks need to be up to date and are of course regulated so we don’t have to worry about the safety of our care home. In many ways, a business premises, and in this case Birtley House Nursing Home, will be generally far safer than a persons’ previous home due to these regulations, there is a lot however that can be done through people having a general awareness in order to prevent anything occurring, it is important to keep people up to date with the latest prevention methods. Remember: Prevention is better than cure!
