FREE Fire Safety Advice
What is a FREE Home Fire Safety Check?
A FREE home fire safety check may be available to you. This is a service we offer to residents in Cambridgeshire. Firefighters or specially trained community safety officers can visit your home to help you identify and assess the risks of fire and advise you on the best practices to keep your home and family safe. We will advise you on the appropriate number and correct type of smoke alarm and fit them in the correct places. All you need to do if you wish to take advantage of this service is to contact us to arrange a date and time that is suitable for you. For additional fire safety advice fill out the Domestic Enquiry form at the CFRS Gateway (the form is sent directly to us). Alternatively, you can ring 0800 917 99 94 and leave a message on the answerphone with your name, address and daytime phone number. We will then give you a call back. Please be aware that home fire safety checks are prioritised according to individual risk.
If you would rather not invite us to your home
Don't worry, if for any reason you would rather not have our specially trained staff visit your home, you can risk-assess your home yourself quite easily. Please visit the Fire Kills website for more information and self-help advice. If you have any questions, you can ring us for further advice by contacting your local district office - contact numbers for which are listed on our district information page.
The home fire safety check service is only for people's homes. For fire safety advice for businesses and business premises owners, please visit the Fire Safety in the Workplace section of this website.
