Book your FREE Safe and Well visit

GMFRS wants everyone in Greater Manchester to be safe from fire at home and know how to escape safely if a fire starts. We have learnt that visiting people in their own homes to make sure they have working smoke detection and a good level of fire safety awareness prevents fires and saves lives.

To keep our communities safe we offer FREE ‘Safe and Well’ visits in Manchester, Stockport, Tameside, Wigan, Bolton, Bury, Oldham, Rochdale, Trafford and Salford.

A Safe and Well visit is a home visit, at a convenient time for you, carried out by trained GMFRS staff. During the visit we will;

  • ask a series of fire risk assessment questions about your home environment, your health and abilities, and your daily activities
  • check each room of your property to identify any fire hazards
  • check that you have at least one working smoke alarm on each level of your home
  • fit FREE ten-year smoke alarms as appropriate
  • provide you with fire safety advice and show you how to test your smoke alarms
  • work with you to agree a fire-safe bedtime routine
  • work with you to provide an escape plan for you and your family, so that you can escape safely if a fire starts
  • provide advice, or link you into organisations that can help you, if you need support with other issues such as health, wellbeing or crime prevention

Here is a short video which explains about the Safe and Well visits.
