Home Fire Safety Checks

London Fire Brigade, LFB is working with Islington Council and other public bodies to promote its free Home Fire Safety Visit service. Providers are asked to refer service users to the LFB’s free safety advice and smoke alarm fitting service.

We believe that successful firefighting starts with prevention. So we have introduced a service where we can visit you, a loved one, or someone you care for at home to provide personalised advice about fire safety. It's totally free, available 24/7, and we will even fit free smoke alarms during the visit if you need them. 

A Home Fire Safety Visit entails two firefighters visiting your service users home, if necessary with a key worker present, to offer advice on how to make your service user’s home and family safe and where appropriate fit smoke alarms for free. It will take about 15 minutes of yours and their time. The firefighters will advise on electrical safety, safe cooking, safe disposal of smoking materials, use of candles as well as an escape plan specific to their home and what to do in the event of a fire.
