As the summer break draws near, Avon Fire and Rescue Service (AF&RS), which is dedicated to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of families in our community, is urging parents and carers to spend 15 minutes inspecting their homes for fire safety. 

An interactive tool that is user-friendly and accessible online is the free Online Home Fire Safety Check. It provides a step-by-step overview of how to assess each home's fire safety measures. You can get personalised advice and practical tips to make your home safer for your family by responding to a series of questions about your habits and various rooms in your house.

Nikki Rice, Prevention Manager at Avon Fire and Rescue Service, said: “As the summer holidays approach, we know families will be spending more time at home. We understand that parents and carers often have concerns about the safety of their homes, especially when it comes to fire hazards around their children. 

“The Online Home Fire Safety Check provides parents and carers with a convenient way to look at their home and habits and make informed decisions to protect their loved ones. I encourage you to take 15 minutes to complete the check, by following the advice given, you could save a life.”

The Online Home Fire Safety Check's main features are as follows: Individualised guidance: Based on your responses about your home and your habits, you will receive personalised information about your home after completing the check. Practical advice and sources: The evaluation offers helpful advice and sources to improve fire safety procedures. 

You will have access to personalised information that covers topics such as smoke alarms, escape plans, and electrical safety. Ensuring the safety of our children and homes is a top priority, and Avon Fire and Rescue Service is dedicated to equipping parents and carers with the knowledge and resources they need to create a secure environment. 

The Online Home Fire Safety Check is a component of the Services' ongoing dedication to spreading awareness of and preventing fires.
