Fire safety at home

Home Fire Risk Assessment Teams are on call now to offer free home checks, free fitted smoke alarms and advice on fire safety to anyone who might be at risk.

Often victims of home fire fatalities are known to local social care agencies. Home Fire Risk Assessment Teams work in the home with older people and people with disabilities to discuss the risks of fire and to look for any visible warning signs. They also work with carers to ensure that they have the relevant knowledge and skills to get themselves and the person they care for out safely in the event of a fire. 

Use the freephone number 0800 169 1125 to book a free home check or use the link below to visit the Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service website for more information including a wide range of fire-related advice that could save your life.

In the event of a fire emergency ring 999.

Vulnerable people are more likely to have fires in their home and to be killed or seriously injured in any fire that does occur.
