Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service are looking partner with individuals and organisations who are in contact with or visit vulnerable people across Wiltshire to provide referrals into our Safe and Well Teams. The below links set out why referrals are important to DWFRS, some risk factors to look out for and how to make a referral to us. Early intervention with at risk vulnerable people allows us to prevent fire deaths and serious injuries caused by fire.

Our Safe and Well Visits are completely free of charge. We supply and install free smoke, heat, and carbon monoxide alarms. We also provide fire retardant bedding, spray, extension leads, heater loans, arson proof letterboxes, and deaf alerts where required.  We have several resources on our website and the following links provide some more information on what a Safe and Well Visit is together with the option to make a referral.
