Community firefighting promotion ambassadors came to local households and conducted checking on electrical appliances and circuits such as domestic appliances, heating equipment and gas appliances and help residents clean up sundries, on the balconies and in the corridors. “November is the first national firefighting promotion month. As winter is approaching and temperature dropping, heating equipment has become the main cause of fire. Therefore, people should pay special attention to electricity safety in winter”, reminded by the firefighters.
