Your safety

Safety at home

Most fires in the home start accidentally and the effects of these can be devastating. It's important you know how to reduce the chances of a fire starting in your home to help keep yourself, your family and your property safe from fire.

Home safety visits

Home safety visits are available to help people live independently and deal with any potential fire hazards in their homes.

During the visit, we will carry out a home fire safety assessment, where we can help you design a fire escape plan so that you and your family will know how to react and escape if you have a fire.

Our home safety visits will be a telephone call to you, asking questions about your current household situation and a fire safety assessment. This will help us to find out if there are any potential hazards and vulnerabilities in your home, then we will give you advice about how to keep you and your family safe and well.

If it's determined that a face-to-face visit would be more beneficial to your individual circumstances, this can be arranged after the initial phone call assessment.

We may also fit a 10 year powered sealed cell smoke detector free of charge after we have given you the fire safety information.

We will also provide an additional health questionnaire with simple questions on social wellbeing, preventing slips, trips and falls at home, and advice on where to get further support if you want to stop smoking or reduce your alcohol consumption.
