What is a home fire safety visit?
We believe that successful firefighting starts with prevention. So we have introduced a service where we can visit you, a loved one, or someone you care for at home to provide personalised advice about fire safety. It’s totally free, available 24/7, and we will even fit free smoke alarms during the visit if you need them.
On the day
We’ll visit your home at the arranged time, and share our expertise. The visit is friendly and informal, and there’s no need to tidy up or provide refreshments – we’re here to keep you safe, not for the tea!
After a chat about fire prevention, we’ll ask you to show us around your home so we can provide personalised advice on:
- Cooking and smoking
- Heaters and heating
- Candles and fireplaces
- Detection systems (smoke and heat alarms)
- Bedtime checks
- What to do if there is a fire
Free smoke alarms
If you need them, we will also provide and fit free smoke alarms in any room where a fire might start. This can be done on the day.
Extra help and support
Depending on your personal circumstances, we might also suggest extra help and support from other organisations. This could be to discuss things like fire retardant bedding or linking a smoke alarm to your Telecare system.
