Will the relevant cabinet member outline what has been done to reduce rates of smoking in the county borough for those who wish to give up?

 

4.         Councillor A Hussain to the Deputy Leader

 

              40% of battery powered and 22% of main powered smoke alarms failed to activate in residential lines in England. An industry statistics show that more than a fifth never test their alarms and 1:10 householders is without a working smoke alarm altogether.

 

In Wales the Welsh Fire and Rescue Services attended 8,271, an increase of 25% and in 3:10 dwelling fires between 2017 -18, no smoke alarm was installed.

The Local Government Association (LGA), which represent over 370 councils and fire authorities in England and Wales, is urging householders to buy and regularly check that their smoke alarms are working.

 

Do we know our failed smoke alarm statistic figures here in Bridgend County and what is our policy to keep our residents safe?
