Fire! You’re about to lose everything. What one item would you save?
Featuring at the Brighton Fringe in May 2021, Treasure reveals the surprising and often touching stories that people have about the one thing they would hate to lose.
Featuring Fat Boy Slim, Elly Griffiths, Momma Cherri, Peter Kyle, Hannah Brackenbury and others, each person’s choice reveals something you didn't know about them. Their stories will stay with you long after the event.
There are about 37,000 house fires in Britain each year and the survivors of these can end up losing everything. Most are caused by cooking, smoking materials, electrical items and candles. The effects of a fire are devastating and aside from the injuries that can occur, many people lose all or some of their belongings.
Dawn Whittaker Chief Fire Officer of East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service (ESFRS) who sat for Treasure, says: “If you do have possessions that are important to you, consider putting them in a fireproof box. I must stress though, no matter how important an item is to you, NEVER go back into a burning building to get it.
It is also important to have a fire escape plan and make sure everyone you live with understands it and preferably have a working smoke detector/ alarm that could alert you if a fire starts when you are asleep.”
