Home Fire Safety Check

What does it do?

A member of H&WFRS's Community Safety Team, will visit your home and offer a range of fire safety advice to keep you and your family safe. Members of the team will also install smoke alarms where needed, and will encourage you to work out an escape plan specific to your home and circumstances. This can be as simple as heading down the stairs, knowing where your keys are, unlocking the door and leaving the property, but can make a huge difference if a fire breaks out in your home, particularly at night.

Who it is for?

Home Fire Safety Checks are offered free of charge and are targeted primarily at the more vulnerable groups in the community. This would include the elderly, people living alone and those with reduced mobility or other issues.
Many referrals for Home Fire Safety Checks are made through other agencies, but Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service would urge anyone who thinks an elderly family member, friend or neighbour might benefit from a visit to get in touch and request one on their behalf.
