Home Safety

To support the development of safer and healthier communities by increasing collaboration with partners on a range of specific activities tailored to jointly identify risk to reduce fire injuries and fatalities in the home.

We work collaboratively with Fire and Rescue Services (FRSs) and other stakeholders to improve and increase consistency of targeted home safety interventions to those at risk as identified by each local authority. Our work streams develop, maintain and implement Home Safety guidance, training resources, toolkits and campaigns.

We have the following work streams:

  • Person Centred Framework
  • Arson/Deliberate Fire Setting and Anti-Social Behaviour
  • Cost of Living
  • Domestic Detection and Assisted Technology
  • Emollients
  • Electrical Safety
  • Fire Safety in the Modern Home, including use of new energy technology and PLEV
  • Hoarding and Cluttering
  • Tobacco, Smoking and Vaping
