Safe and Well checks

If you live in Tyne and Wear, you may be eligible for a free Safe and Well check.

A uniformed member of staff will visit your home to discuss a range of fire prevention topics.

They will then:

  • give you detailed safety advice specific to you and your home
  • fit smoke alarms and issue protective equipment if necessary
  • offer you the opportunity to ask any questions

Safe and Well checks normally take around 30 to 45 minutes, but this can vary depending on your circumstances.
