Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service have been carrying out Home Fire Safety visits since 2001 in its pledge in "Putting Shropshire's Safety First".

What is a Home Fire Safety Visit?

The purpose of the visit is to ensure that you are aware of potential hazards within the home and can take appropriate actions. The visit is not to judge your lifestyle, but to keep you safe from fire.

What will we do?

  • Arrange a convenient time to visit
  • Talk about the main causes of fire in the home
  • Test smoke alarms
  • Discuss points to consider when making a home fire escape plan
  • Give advice on the action to be taken in the event of a fire

To book your free home fire safety visit, please call 01743 260 260 or for further advice and assistance contact the Fire Prevention Team.
