Cumbria Fire and Rescue Service is heavily involved in the prevention of accidents, particularly fires, in the home. In this section there is advice on how you can take measures to minimise the risk in your home by following the links in the menu on the left.
Free smoke alarm reminder service Safelincs is available to all householders to remind them, by text or email, to regularly test their smoke alarms and when it's time to renew batteries.
Home Safety Visit Survey
Every home in Cumbria is eligible to apply for a free Home Safety Visit to help them deal with any potential fire hazards in their homes.
We can help you design a fire plan so that you and your family will know how to react if you have a fire. We will also fit, where applicable, a battery powered smoke detector free of charge.
