Home Fire Safety Visits
We offer Home Fire Safety Visits to vulnerable people to assess their home for safety.

On a visit, our team will assess the home for fire safety, including your gas and electrical appliances, access and escape routes, and smoke alarms. They can also offer advice regarding falls, smoking and make referrals where needed.
