Safe and Well Visit:
Safe and Well visits aim to help people live independently and deal with any potential fire hazards in their homes.
During the visit, Cumbria Fire will carry out a home fire safety assessment, where they can help you design a fire escape plan so that you and your family will know how to react and escape if you have a fire.
Where applicable, they might also fit a 10-year powered sealed cell smoke detector free of charge after delivery of fire safety information. Further fire safety information can be obtained by contacting 0800 358 4777.
