April 23, 2020 | 0 Comments

The Bermuda Fire & Rescue Service [BFRS] is offering fire safety advice using FaceTime, WhatsApp, Zoom, or Skype during the ‘Shelter in Place’ period amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

A spokesperson said, “During the current Shelter in Place period, the Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service [BFRS] is offering fire safety advice to the public in the form of Remote Home Fire Safety visits.

“The BFRS notes that with more people at home, there is the likelihood of more people using such flammable materials as barbecues, candles, and other items.

“So the BFRS is keen to ensure that the public is aware of the appropriate fire safety methods.

“Interested individuals can contact the BFRS between 9.00am and 4.00pm to set up a brief video meeting either using FaceTime Messenger, WhatsApp Messenger, Zoom Meeting, or Skype.

“Once scheduled, a Fire Inspector will talk the resident[s] through general safety information on:

  • Home Fire Safety
  • Smoke Alarms
  • Fire Extinguishers
  • Cooking Fire Safety
  • Candle Safety
  • Flammable Liquid Storage
  • Electrical Fire Safety

“To request a Remote Home Fire Safety visit or for more information about the programme, email fireprotection@gov.bm. Once the request has been made a Fire Inspector will respond to arrange a date and time for the video remote meeting.”
