Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service offer free home fire safety checks and visits.
They involve a Service employee visiting your home at a time convenient to you. They give advice and guidance with respect to fire and home safety needs. They will also assist you with the development of an escape plan so you would know how to get out of your house if there was a fire.
All homes have different requirements but a Home Fire Safety Visit should take no longer than 30 minutes. Call free on 0800 05 02 999.
What is the cost to residents?
This is a completely FREE service that’s offered to people and places where we know there is a higher risk of fire. This includes high-risk individuals such as older people, especially those living alone, those with mobility, vision and hearing impairment, mental health services users, and those liable to intoxication through alcohol/drug use. A combination of these factors will significantly increase the risk of fire. You will not be sold anything.
