Home Fire Safety Checks

South Wales Fire and Rescue Services carries out approximately 6000 Home Fire Safety Checks and fit approximately 12000 smoke alarms in homes throughout the area each year.

In 2005 – 2006 Firefighters across South Wales were called out to hundreds of fires in the home. These fires resulted in the death of eight people.

Smoke alarms are the first line of defence against fire. They are designed to detect fire in its earliest stages and can give you those extra vital minutes to get out safely.

South Wales Fire and Rescue Service is offering you the opportunity to have a FREE Fire Safety Check of your home, carried out by Firefighters from your local Station. During the Check, Firefighters will look at all areas of fire risk within your home and will advise you on the installation and maintenance of smoke alarms.

Where necessary, they will even supply and fit at least one smoke alarm in your home free of charge.

They will also help you make a home fire escape plan, so that you know how to get yourself and other members of your family out of the house quickly and safely.

To arrange your FREE check, phone FREE on 0800 169 1234 or contact your local fire station

We will contact you to arrange a convenient time to carry out your free Home Fire Safety Check.

Please be assured that we will not use your details for any other purpose and will not provide any other organisation or company with your details without your permission.

For your safety:

  • All visits are by appointment only
  • All appointments will be pre-arranged with you
  • The Firefighters who call will be in uniform and will show their ID card
