Older Persons Fire Safety

we need you

Pull your finger out and help keep an older person safe by testing their smoke alarms

You can also help to keep a vulnerable older person by booking a Home Fire Risk Check. This involves a Firefighter or Service Technician visiting them in their home to give fire safety advice, discuss escape routes and fit free life saving equipment such as smoke alarms and fire guards.

Their smoke alarms need testing regularly though and they might not be able to reach them. Please do a good deed and test their smoke alarms for them. Check it bleeps every week!
