Fire Safety in the Home
The role of the Community Fire Safety department of Lincolnshire Fire and rescue is providing community fire safety advice direct to all areas of Lincolnshire, including information on Legislative Fire Safety, Home risk Assessments, Schools, Arson and the latest national safety campaigns, and in doing so making Lincolnshire a safety place to live.
In addition to providing an excellent response to emergency incidents, Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue also seek to improve community safety by working proactively to prevent fires and other emergencies from happening.
The most effective way to save lives and reduce injuries is to reduce the number of incidents that happen in the first place.
The Community Fire Safety Department sets out to achieve these goals through a system of pro-active education involving a wide range of initiatives aimed at promoting a safe environment from fires, road traffic collisions and other emergencies.
This pro-active education is delivered by operational personnel and a dedicated team of Community Fire Safety Advocates, either in people’s homes whilst carrying out home fire safety checks, or by talking to members of the public through our attendance at public events or through our work with partnership organisations.
At home or outdoors, your family are potentially at risk, not just from fire, but other hazards too. The safety of your family should always come first and by following some simple advice, you can protect them.
