Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Service (NIFRS) has signed a partnership agreement with the Northern Ireland Federation of Housing Associations (NIFHA) to protect people who live in sheltered housing, who may be at risk from fire.
NIFRS will work with NIFHA to identify people at risk living within these premises, and provide them with free Home Fire Safety Checks. The overall aim is to provide fire safety advice so as to reduce fire deaths, injuries and fires in sheltered dwellings.
This is the 92nd partnership agreement NIFRS has signed with partner agencies focused on supporting ‘People at Risk’ within our community.
