What is a Home Fire Safety Check?
Helping Hands offer a FREE OF CHARGE comprehensive Home Fire Safety Check in partnership with Greater Manchester Fire & Rescue Service.
This service is available to all Salford residents.
What we will do?
Test your existing smoke alarms.
Supply, replace and fit the new 10 year lifespan Fire Service approved smoke alarms free of charge wherever necessary.
We would also carry out a free questionnaire to help you think and plan what to do if a fire occurs.
When will my Home Fire Safety Check take place?
We anticipate that the visit will last approximately 30 minutes and takes place in your home at a time convenient to you.
How much will it cost?
The service is completely FREE OF CHARGE for ALL Salford residents.
What are our targets and achievements?
Helping Hands started first offered this service in 2008/09 and we aimed to complete a total of 105 Fire Safety Checks per month i.e. 1260 within the first year.
Within 2008/09 we achieved the following:
- Home Fire Safety Checks = 1143
- Smoke Detectors Fitted = 1666
We are most grateful to the Greater Manchester Fire & Rescue Service and Salford City Council for this valuable funding which provides possibly life saving advice and smoke alarms.
All the work is carried out by our trained staff.
