Media release

Fire Service offers free fire safety checks

Free fire safety checks and smoke alarms are being offered by Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service. 

As part of its ongoing focus on preventing fire-related incidents in the home, Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service is providing one-to-one advice in the home, which incorporates fire safety and health and well-being. Wiltshire residents can arrange for a member of the Fire Service to visit them at their property and provide smoke alarms and safety advice as part of a Safe and Well visit.

The visit will identify potential risks within the home and how to reduce or prevent these risks. It covers electrical safety, escape plans, cooking, smoking, personal safety and the immediate installation of smoke alarms, if needed, all free of charge.

If you live in a thatched property, or are over 65, or smoke, or have mobility or long-term health problems, or have children under 5, please call 0800 038 2323 or visit to request a free Safe and Well visit.   Specific information about thatched properties is also available.
