Firefighters from Todmorden station are offering their backing to a new local community group called Dementia Friendly Todmorden, which will raise awareness of the condition locally.

Local firefighters are offering free Home Fire Safety Checks, during which tailored advice can be given.

Specially trained staff can fit smoke alarms which give an early warning should a fire break out. They can also fit special stickers on internal doors, indicating where elderly or infirm residents may be sleeping if the house is full of smoke, to help firefighters rescue people quickly.
