What is a Home Fire Safety Check?
Firefighters now spend much of their time visiting people in their homes completing a Home Fire Safety Check together with the occupier of the house. During the visit, the firefighters will inform and give practical, common sense advice to eliminate or reduce the risk of fire happening in your home. They will also discuss a practical fire escape plan to make sure that if the worst does happen, you can escape with your family safely.
An additional benefit, and one which the Fire and Rescue Authority is justly proud, is the installation of smoke detectors, free of charge, within homes which have been assessed as being most at risk from fires, together with the instruction on their use and maintenance will make sure that occupants are warned of a fire in plenty of time so they can make their escape.
Over the last five years we have visited over 60,000 homes and installed over 92,000 smoke detectors completely free of charge.In addition to the 10 yr smoke detectors the fire service also fit special alarms for the deaf and hard of hearing. Where firefighters come across an occupant during the home fire safety check who cannot hear the smoke alarm they are referred to the Community Safety Department who then go along and assess for the vibrating pad and flashing light which is installed in the bedroom of the occupants home
