Home Fire Safety Checks
The Falkland Islands Fire & Rescue Service offer Home Fire Safety Checks to anyone in the Community.
What is a Home Fire Safety Check?
A Home Fire Safety Check is a visit to your home by a member of Fire Service, who will offer fire safety advice to keep you and your family safe. We will check your smoke detectors, and are able to offer free smoke and Carbon Monoxide detectors for the more vulnerable members of the Community. We will encourage you to work out an escape plan specific to your home and circumstances. This can be as simple as heading down the stairs, knowing where your keys are, unlocking the door and leaving the property. This can make a huge difference if a fire breaks out in your home, particularly at night.
When can I have a Home Fire Safety Check?
Our home fire safety checks can take place any day of the week, during normal working Hours.
The assessment takes as long as necessary but first-time visits are allocated up to 60 minutes.
How do I book a Home Fire Safety Check?

I am concerned about a neighbour or Family member, can I book a Fire Safety Check for them?
