Check out this offer

The old saying is that there’s no such thing as a free lunch. Well, there is.

Cumbria Fire & Rescue Service carries out more than 15,000 free – I’ll repeat that, free – home safety visits a year, but some people still don’t want to know.

I’ll often ask people if they regularly check their smoke alarms. They might answer yes, but we both know they don’t.

Then I’ll ask about a free home safety visit. Over the years I’ve had some terrible answers as to why people are not interested: ‘My house is a mess’ is one, then there’s: ‘It’s not my type of thing’. Really?! Getting a free – again, that’s free – visit that will reduce the risk of you and your family dying in a fire and increases your chances of escaping isn’t your type of thing? If it isn’t, I don’t want to know what is.

Usually anything marked as free has a catch, but in our case there really isn’t one. We’ll visit you for free at a convenient time and we’ll give you free advice on fire safety and escape plans and we’ll fit free 10-year smoke detectors where they’re needed.

All you have to do is ring us on 0800 358 4777 – even the phone call is free.

You could say we’re offering free breakfast, lunch and dinner! So don’t wait, stay safe and book your reservation now!

Craig Drinkald is a station manager for Cumbria Fire & Rescue Service
