Safe and well checks

SHERMAN campaign

The SHERMAN campaign highlights seven factors that put people at greater risk of having a fire, or being less likely to react to a fire.

  • Smoking
  • Hoarding
  • Elderly people or those who live alone
  • Reduced mobility, hearing or visual impairments
  • Mental health issues
  • Alcohol misuse, drugs/medication dependence
  • Needing care or support

It aims to increase both public and professional awareness of the risk factors. It encourages them to contact with the fire service through a safe and well check.
