Essex County Fire and Rescue Service


British Sign Language Videos

We have created a series of short BSL video clips to give deaf communities all the advice they need to stay safe in their homes.

Simply click next to find the clip you want then click play to watch the video.

The videos are also all subtitled. To see the subtitles simply click the 'CC' icon in the bottom right of the screen.

If you have any ideas for future BSL fire safety videos we'd love to hear from you. Email us at
