All Surrey households can receive a FREE Home Fire Risk Check, as part of anour on-going drive to reduce the number of fires in the county.
UK National Fire statistics show that in 2003, 447 people died in accidental fires in the home. More than three quarters of these deaths were in properties without a smoke alarm, or with a smoke alarm that did not work.
Fires can be prevented and a Home Fire Risk Check will help you to do so.
The Home Fire Risk Check will involve a visit from your local fire station at a convenient time for you. Firefighters will use a simple questionnaire to look at potential problem areas in your home and offer advice on the installation and maintenance of smoke alarms. They will also give guidance on how to stay safe from fire including kitchen hazards, safe disposal of smoking materials, candles, heaters, electric blankets and dangers from harmful substances.
