Kent Fire and Rescue Service - Safe and Well Visits

Home safety

Why do I need to think about home safety?

Kent Fire and Rescue Service (KFRS) offer a free Safe and Well home visit service for people living in Kent and Medway. From testing, fitting and relocating smoke alarms, to looking out for potential fire hazards, a free visit can be booked for someone:

• Aged 70 and over

• Living with dementia

• Who has a long-term health condition

• Has young children or is pregnant

• Smoker


If a fire breaks out in your home you're at greater risk if you are an older person, or if you have mobility problems.

Babies and children are also at more risk as their bodies are even less able to cope with smoke and fumes.

We can help keep you safe with a free safe and well visit. If you don't need this service yourself, you can refer a relative, friend or client to us, too.

If you would like to talk to us about a Safe and Well visit or have any fire safety worries about your home, please call our Safe and Well team on 0800 923 7000 (Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm, voicemail outside these hours) and we will be happy to get in touch.
