Localised support and advice
The online home fire safety check tool was officially launched at the NFCC’s Prevention and Protection Conference, which was attended by fire and rescue services across the country. Entering your postcode at the beginning of your assessment will enable specific fire safety information from your local fire service. Your details won’t be used for any other purpose.
Supported by Fire and Rescue
The Home Fire Safety Check tool is being rolled out via regional training days to most of the English Fire and Rescue Services who can use it as a first level of support for fire safety in private homes. A completed check opens the door for subsequent further support if required.
