NEW targets to cut fire deaths and injuries in West Yorkshire have just been released.
By 2004/05, the county's fire authority hopes to reduce the number of deaths in preventable house fires by 10 and callouts by a fifth.
So far in 2003/04, there have been 19 deaths in home fires which could have been averted.
The safety plan will be in an eight-page booklet, Working Together, which is to be sent to every householder in the county.
In a joint statement, the authority chairman, Harry Fox, and Chief Fire Officer Phil Toase said: "The type of pro-active fire safety work we have been championing over recent years will shortly be enshrined in new legislation."
They said the service would have to look beyond its traditional role.
By 2006/07, the service wants to see injuries from accidental house fires falling by 40, from the current target of 314 down to 274.
