    • How fire safe is your heater? Different types and top tips from Devon & Somerset Fire Service

      The colder months have arrived, which means it’s your heater’s time to shine. With energy prices a topical (and sore) point at the moment, and many people working from home more regularly, you may find that a portable heater is a more efficient and cost effective way to keep you warm.
