Free fire safety checks and smoke alarms are being offered by Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service.

As part of its ongoing focus on preventing fire-related incidents in the home, Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service is providing one-to-one advice in the home, which incorporates fire safety and health and well-being. Wiltshire residents can arrange for a member of the Fire Service to visit them at their property and provide smoke alarms and safety advice as part of a Safe and Well visit.

The visit will identify potential risks within the home and how to reduce or prevent these risks. It covers electrical safety, escape plans, cooking, smoking, personal safety and the immediate installation of smoke alarms, if needed, all free of charge. We can also arrange adaptive smoke alarms for people with hearing impairment who are unable to hear their smoke alarms without hearing aids.

Certain criteria apply so to check eligibility, please visit www.dwfire.org.uk or call 0800 038 2323
