Fire safety for older people

DescriptionLondon Fire Brigade can visit you at home to provide free fire safety advice and they can fit specialised smoke alarms for you.

If you have difficulty hearing, seeing or moving about you need to take extra care when dealing with fire risks. Unfortunately the majority of fire deaths in the home involve older people. Many older people live alone and have reduced mobility, which makes it harder to escape from a fire. London Fire Brigade can provide advice and information and offer free home fire safety checks.
