Check your home: new Safe and Well online form
Posted on 23 January 2024
We all want to keep our loved ones, and our homes, safe.
Everyone at Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service, is committed to making our communities safer - and the best way to do this is to prevent incidents from happening in the first place.
Today (Tuesday 23 January) we have launched our new free online home check, in partnership with Safelincs, the National Fire Chief's Council, and Fire Kills.
The tool requires you to complete an initial form, and then takes you through your home one room at a time helping you spot potential fire risks, offering tips and advice on the steps you can take to reduce those risks.
Once you have completed your check, you will receive a personalised fire safety action plan to help keep you and your household safe from fire.
We may then contact you for a home visit, otherwise known as a Safe and Well Visit.
Home visits are a proven way of reducing fires, fire-related deaths, and fire-related injuries. We have worked with partner agencies to also offer advice on falls, keeping warm during winter, stopping smoking and alcohol intake.
Safe and Well Visits are tailored to individuals' needs, relating to their health and lifestyle choices. It may include the fitting of free smoke alarms.
Read more, and complete the form, by visiting our Safe and Well referral page.
Professional referrals, for partner agencies, will remain the same.
