During the Easter weekend, Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue is encouraging parents and their children to take part in their Home Safety Egg-stravaganza.
The service has organised it’s very own Easter egg hunt to raise awareness of fire safety and the dangers posed in the home to young children. Through following a number of special clues, children can learn more about how to stay safe while collecting some chocolatey treats.
Karl Turrill, deputy community fire safety manager, said: “Being safe in the home is very important, especially for children so we would really appreciate it if you and your kids can take part in this activity.
“Fire safety is not always the most exciting subject so we hope that this Easter egg hunt will be a bit of fun in your home on Sunday morning.
“Whatever the ultimate cause, human behaviour continues to be the defining factor in the vast majority of house fires in Lincolnshire.
“If you notice something which could be a risk in your home or you are unsure about anything while you are hiding those eggs, go onto our website and request a home safety check. We will assist you in alleviating those concerns. After all, we are the eggs-perts!”
