Welsh Language Rights Day 2022

The 7th of December has been designated Welsh Language Rights Day, and so, Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service wishes to take advantage of this day to remind the public that they have the right to use the Welsh language with the Fire and Rescue Service.

Welsh Language Rights Day is held on the 7th of December as this is the date on which the Welsh Language Measure, the measure that created Welsh language rights, was passed.

Iwan Cray, Deputy Chief Fire Officer, said:

“Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service is very happy to be supporting Welsh Rights Day 2022.
I would like to take this opportunity to encourage every individual who wishes to do so, to use your Welsh with us.

We, as a Fire and Rescue Service, serve every individual within the communities of Mid and West Wales, and therefore encourage everyone who wishes to contact or communicate with us, through the medium of Welsh, to use our Welsh language service.“

Here is a list of some of the rights that you, as a member of the public, have when dealing with MAWWFRS:

  • Documents in Welsh
  • Leaflets in Welsh
  • Websites in Welsh
  • Social media messages in Welsh
  • Signs in Welsh
