Cornwall Fire Service - Free Fire Safety Checks
Cornwall Fire Service offers free fire safety checks for people with disabilities in conjunction with Disability Cornwall.
In order for us to assess your level of need, we need to ask some questions about you or the occupier of the property. Those with the greatest need in the community will be eligible for a free home fire safety check and will be contacted to arrange an appointment to do this. In this case a firefighter will visit your home at an allocated time and accompany you around every room in your property with the aim of:
- Identifying and making you aware of the potential risks in your home.
- Making sure you know what to do in order to reduce or prevent these risks.
- Helping you put together an escape plan in case a fire breaks out in the future.
- Ensuring you have a working smoke alarm and if you don't, we will fit a free smoke alarm (type of alarm will vary depending on the need).
The home fire safety check will take about half an hour of your time. The firefighter will be wearing a uniform and carrying an identification card. Please ask to see the identification card, and if you require confirmation telephone the freephone helpline 0800 3581 999.
To help us determine if you are eligible for a free home fire safety check please complete the home fire safety check short survey. If you are eligible an officer will contact you and arrange a convenient time to visit your home. Please be aware that there is a waiting list in place.
