Strongman Invergordon brothers throw weight behind Scottish Fire and Rescue Service’s lifesaving push

Tom and Luke Stoltman.

The famous strongman brothers of INVERGORDON are doing their part to keep people safe in their homes – by supporting a new campaign by the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS).

Tom and Luke Stoltman support the Make the Call campaign, encouraging community members to make a call to save a life.

As they trained for the World’s Strongest Man competition which will take place next week, the brothers took time to encourage people to stay safe.

The SFRS appeals to caregivers, family and friends of those at risk of serious injury or death from an accidental fire.

By calling the SFRS and letting them know of anyone over the age of 50, who smokes, has mobility issues, lives alone or uses medical oxygen, firefighters will conduct a free home visit to check on fire safety and offer advice.

Area Commander Derek Wilson is the local senior officer in Highland. He said: “We thank the Stoltman brothers for taking time out of their busy schedules to help us deliver this very important message. Unfortunately, we see fires that could have been prevented and we welcome any opportunity to help keep people safe in our communities. We need friends, families and carers of people at risk to help us reach those in isolation.

“We also take this opportunity to wish Tom and Luke the best for their upcoming competition.”

You can make the call to 0800 0731 999 or text “FIRE” to 80800 from your mobile phone.
