Home Fire Safety Checks

What does it do?

Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service are committed to the reduction of accidental dwelling fires, as well as deaths and injuries that result from these fires. By identifying the potential for fires in the home, we can effectively prevent many avoidable fires from occurring. The Home Fire Safety Check (HFSC) can be considered a form of fire fighting, “extinguishing” fires before they start.

Who it is for?

Statistically certain groups of people in the community are at greater risk from fire. Priority will be given to these groups in order to maximise the Fire Service’s efforts to reduce avoidable fires and injuries. These groups are as follows:

  • Families with young children
  • Single parent families
  • People on low incomes
  • The elderly
  • People with a disability
  • People with a drug or alcohol dependency
  • Victims of dwelling fires
  • People living in Houses in Multiple Occupation
