Fire safety at home

London Fire Brigade Home Visits
You are more likely to be at risk from a fire in the home if you are elderly or have a disability. This is because you may find it more difficult to react quickly, and probably spend more time indoors. You can request a free home fire safety visit to make sure your home is safe.

As part of their free, home fire safety visit, The London Fire Brigade will assess your home and offer advice on how to make it safer and where appropriate they will fit a smoke alarm.

The home fire safety visit is usually for people regarded as having a higher risk of fire in the home, such as:

  • Older people living alone.
  • People with mobility, vision or hearing impairments.
  • People accessing mental health service users.
  • Those liable to intoxication through alcohol and/or drug use.

If you are concerned that your home may be at risk of fire, or you know someone who you think needs help, you can arrange a free home fire safety visit, by 

Home risk assessment escape plan
Most fires at home start accidentally, so to raise awareness and prevent fires, The London Fire Brigade have made this short questionnaire to assess fire safety in your home.  They offer simple, low-cost precautions to lessen the chances of a fire starting and make it a safer place for you and your family.

Just fill in the on-line form here and LFB will measure the risks and give you quick, useful advice.
