    The cost of living crisis will affect all of us over the winter, with many people concerned about how to keep warm and heat their homes. Scottish Fire and Rescue Service is hosting an online event on 27 October around what the cost of living crisis means to communities and how this may potentially increase fire risk.  

    Partners are invited from across all sectors to come together to collectively consider how we can identify those at highest risk and what we can do to provide advice and support.
