Safe and well visits

Cheshire firefighters conducting a Safe and Well Visit with local residents

Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service offer a free 'Safe and Well Visit' for people who are aged over 65 and for people who are referred to us by partner agencies because they are considered to be at a particular risk.

Safe and Well Visits incorporate the traditional fire safety information (and smoke alarm fitting), but also offer additional advice on slips, trips, fall prevention, a heart check, bowel cancer screening as well as offering additional support to those who wish to stop smoking, taking drugs or reduce their alcohol consumption. During winter, winter warmth safety advice will also be discussed.

Smoke alarms

Buying and fitting smoke alarms could help you to save your home and the lives of your family.
