A housing provider has been out and about highlighting the importance of gas safety issues.
Throughout Gas Safety Week, Bernicia staff were on hand across south east Northumberland to give advice to tenants and members of the public highlighting the important message of allowing access for the annual gas servicing programme to take place and offered rewards for first time access to be able to do this.
Bernicia had already promoted the importance of gas safety at a summer fair it held in August, where the team were able to offer advice to their tenants.
The organisation’s maintenance manager Paul Dunn said: “We are pleased that we consistently achieve such a high level of service success for gas servicing to our properties, and we are determined to continue to get our message across to our tenants of the importance of allowing Bernicia gas engineers into their home to undertake the annual gas safety service.
“This minimises the risks associated with poorly maintained gas appliances.”
Representatives from Bernicia were also on hand during the week to answer any housing related queries.
