Just three breaths of fire smoke can be life-threatening. Sadly, older people, those with mobility or health issues are most likely to be injured or die if they have a fire at home.
What makes them more at risk?
- no working smoke alarms, or having them fitted in the wrong place
- clutter blocking escape routes
- they find it hard to get around
- they are hard of hearing or have failing eyesight
- possible dementia or other health issue
- taking medication
- lifestyle choices (smoking/alcohol)
Keep them protected and make sure they get the advice and support they need – getting peace of mind for them and you
- free help and equipment to help keep them safe
- talk to us about how we can help them remain independent in their own homes
- top tips on preventing a fire
