Home Fire Safety

Also known as:- Advice in the Home, Arson Reduction, Fire Awareness, Fire Education for School Children, Fire Safety, Home fire safety checks, Smoke detectors

Service Description: ‘Prevention being better than cure’ is an old adage but never truer than when planning a life saving strategy. Over four hundred people die in fires within their own homes each year. These fires are mainly the result of accidents or omissions and are preventable. We know through our experience that having the correct fire safety measures in place will reduce the risk of having an accidental fire to a minimum. If a fire does occur then these measures will greatly increase the chances of survival.

Our Community Safety department provide:

Visits to homes to give advice and to install smoke alarms
Presentations to various groups/organisations
Fire safety demonstrations and displays
Visit schools to deliver the school fire safety education programme
Respond to all requests from members of the public for advice on fire safety related matters
