|When the temperature dips this winter make sure you, your friends and neighbours stay safe, warm and well this winter. Winter can be a difficult time for people for many reasons and for some the thought of heating their homes over winter may make them shiver all over.
Living in a cold home is not just uncomfortable, it can result in poor health and increase the risk of fire in the home. People can find themselves living with the cold for many reasons, whether it’s financial strain, broken or complicated heating equipment, poor insulation, homes in a poor state of repair or even misconceptions about how the cold can be good for you. Whatever the reason, the cold hard fact remains that anyone can be affected by this issue and the effects could be serious.
Don’t just batten down the hatches
You don’t have to live with the cold, there is support out there and Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service can help by putting you in touch with the right people who can provide the right support. Visit our website for details.
The Priority Services Register provides help to vulnerable customers when they need it most. It is a joint register that allows the utility companies to keep track of those who need support so that they can provide services and advice during times of uncertainty.
Alternatively your own utilities service provider may have information on their own website about what support you can get to help you stay safe, warm and well over winter.
For further information on how to keep warm safely at home and the support that may be available please visit Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service’s website
