Residents in Dawlish are set for a Community Action Day which will see Teignbridge District Council, the Police, the Fire & Rescue Service and Teign Housing team up to provide safety information and services to local people.
Taking place throughout Wednesday, June 23, the initiative is part of Operation Everest, a police-led initiative across Devon and Cornwall aiming to connect with local people and tackle the issues that matter to them.
Representatives of all agencies will be calling door to door at over 700 homes and businesses with information for occupiers, while representatives will also be on The Lawn during the day hoping to meet and many local people as they can. They will be working with Teignbridge Council to consult residents and visitors about which issues are really important to them. Both agencies hope to use the information to influence their work to improve the quality of life for people in Dawlish and beyond.
Throughout the day the Fire Service will be offering free Fire Safety checks and the Police Crime Prevention Officer will be available to give advice on home and personal safety.
