Safe and well checks

Request a safe and well check

A safe and well check is a free assessment of the fire risks within your home.

After you submit your request, we will assess whether you are eligible for a home visit.

If you are not eligible, we will send you a home fire safety information booklet.

If you are, we will contact you to arrange a time and date. This can take up to a month, depending on the level of risk.

A firefighter or community fire safety advocate will carry out the check. They will give you advice on how to reduce your risk of fire. If necessary, they will fit smoke alarms.

They may offer further advice on how to improve your health and wellbeing.
