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.

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

Please be aware that our phone call will show as a withheld number. If you are unsure about the legitimacy of the call, please hang up and contact us on:
