Your local fire service can visit you and carry out a check. It’s free and you may be eligible for a smoke alarm. The visits focus on three key areas: Identify and be aware of the potential fire risks within your home; know what to do in order to reduce or prevent these risks; put together an escape plan in case a fire does break out and ensure you have working smoke alarms. Call 0800 177 7069 for more information or to arrange a visit.
Did you know that the fire and rescue service also offer general health and wellbeing visits across Sussex from trained volunteers. They can offer advice and information, and put you in touch with appropriate sources of help. If you would like to arrange a visit, or find out more please call 01323 462 437.
