A Note from FORGET ME NOT: Safety in the Home

Did you know… Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service provides Safe and Well checks…

FREE OF CHARGE?

A dedicated team of operational firefighters and Community Safety Advisors (CSA's) conduct these 'Safe and Well' visits at people's homes throughout Gloucestershire.

The CSA's have received additional training to give people in their homes not only fire safety advice, but advice on their general wellbeing. This additional training ensures the CSA's can recognise winter-related illnesses and issues, such as falls, cold homes, flu and social isolation during health and wellbeing checks for the over 65s.

If the fitting of smoke alarms is recommended during a 'Safe and Well' visit, these will be supplied and fitted free of charge.

TO BOOK A FREE VISIT call 0800 180 41 40
