Tyne & Wear Fire and Rescue Service

Tyne & Wear Fire &  Rescue Service offer Home Safety Checks (HSC) to anyone living in the Tyne & Wear area.  An HSC consists of a home visit by Fire and Rescue Service personnel, with a view to identifying the fire associated hazards and risks within the home and to provide the residents with fire safety advice and information appropriate to their needs and circumstances.   Fire Service personnel also conduct Safe & Well visits (for occupants who are over the age of 65).  This is an enhancement of the current HSC which focuses on the health risks associated with falls in the home.  Fire Service personnel can offer brief advice, carry out low level intervention and make onward referrals on an occupier’s behalf.  They also have several community venues:
