Conwy taxis help spread safety message this Christmas

Taxi firms in Conwy have teamed up with their local fire service to help keep customers safe this Christmas - spreading the message "Stay safe! Don't cook after a night out!".

Several firms in the town will be including safety messages in all their texts to customers, as well as handing out bottled water branded with the same message.

Countless fires are caused each year by people returning home from the pub and deciding to cook a snack for themselves before going to bed.

My advice is to play it safe - prepare a snack before you go out or pick up a take away on the way home instead.

We’re thrilled to be working with these local firms to communicate these important messages, and we look forward to building on these relationships in the new year and beyond.

I’d also like to remind residents of the importance of making sure they are protected should the worst happen and a fire breaks out in your home - a working smoke alarm is essential to safeguard the safety of you and your family.

The campaign will start on Friday, 9th of December and will run for two weeks.
