AT the annual meeting of Broadmayne and West Knighton WI, Peter Brown of the Dorset Fire and Rescue Service gave a most interesting and informative talk about safety in the home, with a film showing how quickly a small smoulder in a chair can develop into a whole room ablaze. Members were advised on many areas of potential danger, especially with cooking, cigarettes, candles and electrical equipment and if members had thought they knew it all, they were wrong, as Mr Brown’s horror tales were a salutary reminder of the care that should be taken.
