Getting older or living alone

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.

Do you know someone who needs extra help to keep safe from fire?

Look out for the danger signs next time you visit friends, neighbours or relatives and get free advice to help keep them safe.

Contact us for free home safety advice on 0800 923 7000 (free from most landlines, mobile charges may vary) or email contact details to home@kent.fire-uk.org
