The Chief Fire Officers Association's (CFOA) UK Road Safety Week is taking place from 9 to 15 June 2014

The overarching message of this year's UK Road Safety Week by fire and rescue services is 'Be Safe Out There' and firefighters in Cheshire, alongside police colleagues, will be supporting the week by holding a number of road safety events.

During the week fire and rescue services across the UK will be working to get road safety messages across to all road users, and in particular to pedestrians, young drivers, cyclists and motorcyclists. Deaths and injuries on the road affect not just the individual — the lives of families can be destroyed by losing a loved one, or changed forever by having to care for a family member with life-changing injuries.

The Service's Road Safety Manager Martin Dowle said: "Firefighters will be out and about in the area throughout Cheshire to help raise awareness of road safety issues and encourage everyone to be aware of road safety, not only from behind the wheel but also when walking, cycling, skating or running, to keep everyone safe. We are committed to reducing the number of people killed and seriously injured on our roads and so we are delighted to support this important campaign."

The week will cover a range of topics from tyre safety, safer cycling, advice to drivers who have been stopped by police for misdemeanours such as driving using a mobile phone or not wearing a seatbelt.
