Make Your Home Safer

We offer free Home Safety Visits to everyone in East Sussex

If you would like to find out more about a Home Safety Visit or phone call, you can: 

What will happen when you contact us? 

A member of our Community Safety Team will be in contact with you to arrange a suitable time/date to visit your property or call you. You will be asked a few simple questions regarding your property/occupants.  This will help us to prioritise our visits and calls.

Can you contact us on behalf of someone else? 

Yes – we would ask that you get their permission first and let them know that we will ask them a number of questions. 

Do we fit free smoke alarms?

In some cases, yes, we will fit free smoke alarms.   

Collaborative work with GP surgeries:

The Fire Service works with GP surgeries to deliver home safety visits to those most at risk from accidental dwelling fires.

So far 8 surgeries have come forward to be part of this innovative project, and invitations offering home safety visits have been sent to those people on the falls, frailty and Dementia registers.

This project will be expanded, so we can continue to deliver home safety visits to the most vulnerable people in our community.
