Lancashire Volunteer Partnership work closely with Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service (LFRS) who offer a free Home Fire Safety Check Service to local residents who may be at risk of fire.  The service is particularly relevant to those who may be considered vulnerable such as those with a disability, who live alone, are living with a mental health condition or struggle to get around the house.  LFRS will assess the risk presented to them and will provide information in the form of advice or a Safe and Well visit depending on the level of risk presented. During a visit fire safety information including escape plans and bedtime routine are discussed, smoke detectors fitted and appropriate equipment can be provided to reduce fire risk.
