DIY Safety Check

Book a safety visit

We offer Home Safety Checks to people who are considered to be particularly at risk of fire.

During a visit, firefighters or community safety staff will give you advice on how to make your home safer, what to do in the event of a fire and what to do if you are trapped by a fire. They will also fit free smoke alarms if a home is without one and explain how to keep them working.
