Fire safety for vulnerable adults
Published: 29 April 2020
Do you care for someone who may be vulnerable in a fire?
Surrey Fire and Rescue know that people with sight, hearing, mobility and mental health difficulties are sadly more likely to be killed in a fire. This is because they may not realise there is a fire, are unable to alert the fire and rescue service or escape from the building.
If you, or someone else you know, cares for someone like a relative, friend or neighbour, there are resources and services available to help keep them safe. These include free smoke alarms and alarms for people with hearing difficulties.
Please get in touch with us as soon as possible:
- Email: email@example.com
- Call 0300 200 1005
- SMS: 07527 182 861
More information about fire safety for vulnerable adults is also available on The Surrey Fire and Rescue website.
