A Home Fire Safety Check is a visit to the home to provide advice on how to stay safe from fire.
Each visit will be carried out by at least two staff from Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Service (NIFRS) who will be wearing NIFRS uniform and will carry a NIFRS photographic identification card.
During the visit they will either fit a smoke alarm or show you how to test your existing smoke alarm, explain the potential fire risks in your home, provide fire safety advice and explain the importance of having a night time fire safety routine and a fire escape plan. The visit will take up to 40 minutes.
Sometimes it is useful when visiting the property and giving advice, a family member, friend, neighbour or care worker is also present so that they can assist with the advice.
