Advice from Humberside Fire and Rescue Service

“Below are ways you can make your home safer:

  • Fit smoke alarms and test them regularly
  • Never leave cooking unattended
  • Plan and practice your escape route
  • Switch off appliances before going to bed – including your cooker
  • Ensure all candles, heaters and open fires are extinguished or turned off before going to bed
  • Close all internal doors to prevent a fire from spreading
  • Share your safety plans with family and friends and look out for the elderly
  • In the event of a fire, get out, stay out and dial 999

We have Public Safety teams across the area who are trained to deliver fire safety advice to all households. However, when we receive referrals from partner agencies regarding individuals or households who have shown that they are at greater risk of fire in the home, we will arrange a Safe and Well visit to identify any measures needed to make their home a safer place. Residents can also call 0300 303 8242 to see whether they qualify for a Safe and Well visit or receive one of our information leaflets.”
