Safe and Well Visit

What’s involved in a Safe and Well visit?
Safe and Well visits involve much more than just fitting smoke detectors, just take a look at this flyer.

The visits, are carried out by operational firefighters, based at our 38 community fire stations, and usually take around an hour. We know there are strong links between health, well-being and lifestyle choices and the risk of fire. This is why, with the residents’ permission, the fire service cover a range of topics with a link to fire risk, including:

  • smoking, alcohol, medication and drugs
  • mental health, dementia
  • mobility including slips, trips and falls
  • hoarding
  • loneliness and social isolation
  • healthy eating and lifestyles
  • home security
  • road safety

Any firefighting crew attending a person’s home for a Safe and Well visit will always carry their identity cards, and you should ask to see this before allowing them entry to your home.
