Cornwall's firefighters start eight straight days of strike action.

They will walk out from midday until 2pm and then from 11pm until midnight every day from Saturday 9th August until Saturday 16th

It is in that long running row over pensions.

We are told contingency plans are in place to cover any callouts.

Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service's advice is to take extra care with these eight steps:

* In the event of a fire, you should get out, stay out and call 999 - you will get an emergency response
* Make sure you have smoke alarms on at least every level of your home.
* Smoke alarms save lives, but only if they're working. Test them regularly.
* Stub cigarettes out properly and dispose of them carefully.
* Plan your escape route and make sure everyone knows how to get out in a fire.
* Take extra care in the kitchen and never leave cooking unattended.
* Do not overload electrical sockets. Watch out for faulty and over-heating electrical equipment, and wiring/cables.
* Drinking alcohol? Plan how to get home safely without driving.
