Fire and smoke can spread very quickly. Both can kill. You, your family and visitors are responsible for preventing the outbreak of fire. Here you can find important information that advises what you can do to prevent fires and what to do if one should break out in your home.
It is important that everyone knows how to avoid fires starting and what to do if one does start. Please see the Fire Kills Wise up fact sheet for why you must take this responsibility seriously.
Devon and Somerset Fire & Rescue Service offer home safety visits which will provide you with free advice about staying safe in your home. To book a free home safety visit call 0800 7311 822.
We take fire safety very seriously and carry out Fire Risk Assessments for our properties to make sure we keep our residents safe. On our Publications page, under Policies and Procedures, you will find copies of the Fire Risk Assessments for the Mount Wise Towers - Tavy, Tamar and Lynher - which clearly show the fire safety measures in place.
All relevant fire risk assessments are available on request.
