New Fire Brigade Initiative in Wandsworth

London Fire Brigade have been helping Magdalen Estate residentsA new scheme run by London Fire Brigade, to help promote fire safety and educate people with disabilities in how to deal with emergency situations, has been trialled in Wandsworth, and is now set to be rolled out across the capital.
Having entered into a formal agreement with Leonard Cheshire Disability, a charity that provides help and support for those living with disabilities, the LFB delivered safety information to those most at risk during talks at the Randall Close Resource Centre in Wandsworth, just down the road from the Magdalen Estate. London Fire Commissioner Ron Dobson spoke of how, now that the scheme is up and running following such as successful trial run, the organisations are looking forward to being able to educate fire fighters in some of the difficulties that the disabled might face in adhering to fire safety procedures, which will in turn help improve the service that they offer the public. Mr Dobson told the Wandsworth Guardian that he truly believes that many lives will be saved with this initiative.
If you, or anyone you know who is living in or around the Magdalen Estate has any fire safety concerns, London Fire Brigade offer advice and support, much of which can be found on their website.
