Keep You and Your Loved Ones Safe
Safe and Wellbeing Visit Request
We have been following the government’s advice closely regarding limiting the spread of the Coronavirus.
As of Friday 25 September and until further notice, the majority of our Safe and Wellbeing Visits to people’s homes will be suspended to help protect our firefighters and limit the spread of the virus throughout our communities.
Our Firefighters are now doing telephone Safe and Wellbeing Visits, whereby staff from your local fire station can give you a call to chat about how to keep you and your family safe from fire. This includes checking you have working smoke alarms to using electrical items and planning a safe escape in an emergency.
In addition, the Service’ Community Risk Officers are still undertaking home visits to those most at risk of fire. Referrals are still welcomed from our partners, via the usual routes.
If you would like a Safe and Wellbeing Visit, please call us on 0345 223 4221.
