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.
To contact us about booking a visit, please complete the short form below. If you qualify for a visit, a member of our team will be in touch to arrange this, so please make sure you check the details you’ve provided carefully before submitting the form.
Otherwise, you will find some useful information on carrying out your own check here.
The form below collects some personal information, which we will only use for the purposes described. You can find out more about how we collect and store personal information here
Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, our Community Safety activities have been reduced, with the exception of high risk cases.
This means we are restricting our Community Safety activity to those premises where a significant risk exists that could lead to a loss of life or significant distress.
- With low to medium risk cases, we will carry out your home safety check on the phone and deliver equipment, such as smoke alarms, if needed
- With high risk cases we will conduct an initial check over the phone before coming to your home to fit smoke alarms and hazard spot
All requests for a Home Safety Check will be noted and once we are able to, we will triage all requests and contact you to arrange a visit if appropriate. If an occupier is unable to be contacted via telephone or text message SYFR will not be able to visit.
