Home Safety Checks – reduction during pandemic

Much like other services across the country, South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue’s community safety activity currently looks different to normal.

This is due to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic which has impacted on our ability to deliver home safety visits, safe and well checks, school visits and station-based events.

The joint police and fire Lifewise Centre is also closed, until further notice, and fire station community rooms are no longer being used by our partner agencies.

Regards home safety checks, members of the public, and especially our partners, are still encouraged to make referrals through our website but please expect a delay in our response to these.

With ‘NATIONAL LOCKDOWN’ being our current state:

  • With high risk cases, we will complete an initial check over the phone and then attend your home to fit smoke alarms and spot any hazards
  • With low-medium risk cases, we will complete the check exclusively over the phone and deliver equipment such as smoke alarms to your door

Please note, there is a range of safety information available on our website, here.
