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.

You can use the tool to:

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 Home Fire Safety Visit
Any professional can refer someone for a Home Fire Safety Visit if concerned about their fire safety.
The referral process will assess if the occupant is eligible for a home visit.
Our online assessment helps spot potential fire risks, offering tips and advice for the occupant.
If considered low risk then you will receive a personalised fire safety action plan that will keep the occupant safe from fire. If you still feel a visit is required please contact Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue on 01476 565441.
If they are eligible for a home visit, we will contact the person you select in the referral form to arrange a visit.
Those considered most at risk will be prioritised.
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.
- 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.
