Home fire safety visits are changing from 2018, Public Safety teams and operational crews will begin delivering 'Safe and Well' visits in line with the overarching national strategy of 'Fire as a Health Asset'.
During your Safe and Well Assessment they will –
- show you how to check your smoke alarm;
- inspect your home to help you spot any potential fire hazards and show you what to do to reduce or prevent the risk of fire;
- help you to create an escape plan for your property
As well as Fire Safety, the Safe and Well assessment will also review other structural and health issues such as a loose banister or reduced mobility.
The assessment will centre on four main themes -
- Smoking cessation
- Social isolation
- Falls prevention
- Winter warmth
