National Chip Week

We will be holding a launch event on Wednesday 22nd February from 10.00-16.00 at Oceans Fish and Chips, Sutton Hill, Telford this will be supported by the Outreach Vehicle and red watch will be attending with the Fire engine in the afternoon.

We will be supporting National chip week 20-26th February 2012 with a poster and information campaign to promote safer cooking.

National chip week is an initiative to promote Britain’s potato industry and SFRS are hoping to use the publicity around this week to raise awareness of the dangers of cooking fires and particularly cooking after a night out.

We will be asking Takeaways, shops pubs to display out – “great night out – Buy don’t Fry “message to encourage people to stop off at the local chippy after a night out rather than cooking after consuming alcohol.

Let’s face it – the occasional takeaway won’t kill you but setting fire to your kitchen after a night out just might!
