Home Fire Safety Visit

Online Home Fire Safety Check

Our Online Home Fire Safety Check takes you through your home one room at a time helping you spot potential fire risks, offering tips and advice on the steps you can take to reduce those risks.

Once you have completed your check, you will receive a personalised fire safety action plan to help keep you and your household safe from fire.

You can use the tool to:

  • Identify fire risks in your home
  • Learn how you can reduce the risks
  • Create your own home fire safety plan

Based on the answers you have given we may ask to contact you to arrange for one of our Fire Safety Advocate to come visit you.  You will be asked to fill out a form with your contact details and we will get in touch with you.

Professional referral for a safe and well check

Any professional can refer someone for a safe and well check if concerned about their safety.

After you submit a referral, we will assess if the resident is eligible for a home visit.

If they are not, we will send them home fire safety information booklet. If you feel this would not be suitable, tell us why in the referral form.

If they are eligible, we will contact the person you select in the referral form to arrange a time and date. This can take up to a month, depending on the level of risk.

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.
