Help us understand more about fires in the home

We would like your help in understanding more about fires which happen in the home.

Our short online survey asks a series of questions about what you were doing when they had a fire – or if you have ever had a “near miss”.       


Mark Matthews, Assistant Director of Safer Communities, said:

“We want to hear from people who have had fires – however small – and those who have had a near miss – maybe you’ve accidentally knocked over a candle or forgotten you have food on the hob. We’d like to find out what   was going on just before that happened – where you distracted by something? Had you put a timer on or fallen asleep? All of this information means we can think about new ways to help people stay safe in their homes.”
