Flaming free offer for bonfire night

Abbot Fire Group are once again offering free fire extinguisher hire to local community, charity, or not-for-profit bonfire or firework events. This is the 12th year the Buckingham based company has run this initiative to help keep the community safe on bonfire night. The company is offering 24 fire extinguishers to hire to the first callers to ring Abbot Fire Group on 01280 824111, simply mention this offer.

Abbot Fire Group will discuss the event with the organiser, taking into consideration the number of attendees, and ensure the fire safety requirements are covered by a suitable number of fire extinguishers on the night, up to a maximum of eight extinguishers per event. The offer is open to those locally organising a bona fide not-for-profit or community neighbourhood bonfire or firework event.

Nigel Walton, Director at Abbot Fire Group commented: “I am delighted to be able to continue our commitment to supporting the local community, and helping keep people safe at bonfire and firework events, by providing free fire extinguisher hire. We had an incident one year where one of the fire extinguishers had to be used to extinguish a rogue firework which clearly demonstrates why we run this offer.”

Abbot Fire Group are based in Buckingham and can be contacted on 01280 824111.
