11 April 2018Fire Safety Talk
10th April 2018 : Fire Safety in the Home
An absorbing talk by Colin Henderson from Inverness Fire Brigade was well attended and there is little doubt that most (if not all) attendees would have been up on chairs the following day checking their smoke and heat detectors and their batteries.
Plenty of discussion and everybody left that meeting having learnt something new on the subject - an hour or so well spent!
Thank you Colin.
