Fire and Rescue - Safe and Well home visits

The Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service offers a Safe and Well visit to vulnerable residents with tailored fire safety advice, smoke detection, hearing impaired alarms (if needed) and well-being advice with signposting to additional agencies.   

The service includes:

  • A check on each room of your property to identify potential hazards.
  • A check that you have working smoke alarms on each level of your home and where appropriate, fit free ten-year smoke alarms.
  • Provide fire safety advice and show you how to test your smoke alarms.
  • Work with you to create an escape plan for you and your family.
  • Provide advice, signpost or refer you to our partner agencies that can support you with health or wellbeing needs.
