At Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service we are committed to making the communities we serve safer, and the best way to do this is preventing incidents from happening in the first place. Home Safety Checks are a great way to do this as they are a proven way of reducing fires, fire-related deaths and fire-related injuries.
Most people are able to assess the risks in their home themselves and fit their own smoke alarms; the information on our ' Safety in Your Home ' page can help and further help with this can be sought by calling our advice line on Freephone 0800 022 3235.
However, if you feel you are unable to assess the risks in your own home, or one of your friends, family or neighbours is potentially vulnerable to fire, we may be able to organise a home visit. These take around 40 minutes and involve firefighters, or members of our Community Safety team, visiting your home to offer advice on how to make your home safer and what to do if you're trapped by fire. They will also fit free smoke alarms if required.
If you, or somebody you know, would like to request a Home Safety Check, please fill out the form below.
