Residents in the Park End area of Middlesbrough are being invited to take part in a community event on Sunday 26 June aimed at making the area a safer place.
Cleveland Fire Brigade will be working with its partners who include Middlesbrough Council, Cleveland Police and Erimus Housing, to offer expert safety and security advice to those that live in the area.
Activities will be based around Park End Community Centre on Overdale Road where information is being offered on securing property from crime, preventing arson and free Home Fire Safety Visits which include fitting free smoke alarms where necessary. Young people will also have the opportunity to have a game of football with their local fire crew and also have a go at boxing.
Martyn Petrie, Middlesbrough Station Manager said: “We are passionate about delivering a service which helps keep people safe in their homes, on our roads and we also support healthier lifestyles. All of the activities delivered during this event are available all year around, but we wanted to bring as many of our staff and partners into the area for one joint event so people can see exactly what we can provide.
“We would urge the community to attend and inform any of our representatives on the day of concerns they have about the area they live in, and to take advantage of the advice and services available either on the day or in the future.
“Attendance on the day could be the key to making the area a safer place and even save someone’s life at some point in the future.”
