We are continuing to carry out high risk home safety visits only, in order to protect our staff and the public we serve.
This is due to the on-going coronavirus pandemic that has also forced us to suspend all school visits, cancel station-based events and close the Lifewise Centre in Rotherham.
We are still encouraging people to make safe & well referrals and request home safety checks – there will just be a delay in us carrying these out unless they are deemed as immediately high risk.
The term ‘risk’ means different things to different agencies but partners should be assured that we will get round to handling each referral as soon as possible.
Anyone deemed as being extremely vulnerable to fire will receive a visit from one of our Fire Community Support Officers.
