Safe and Well Visits are carried out by Surrey Fire and Rescue officers and in some instances, our volunteers. They combine home safety checks, reducing the risk of fire in your home and  where appropriate, you will also be offered information to help you improve your wellbeing, allowing you to live safer and more independent lives.

Surrey residents can arrange a free Safe and Well Visit by completing the online request form or calling the request line on freephone 0800 085 0767.

Remember to fit smoke alarms on every level of your home and test them regularly.
