What is a Home Fire Risk Check?
A Home Fire Risk Check is a basic assessment of the fire risks in your home, carried out by Bucks Fire & Rescue staff. It takes about 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of the house. They will need you to be present to answer a few questions.
Bucks Fire & Rescue staff will offer you fire safety advice, based on any potential fire risks that they may have identified during the check. You may also ask them any fire safety questions you may have.
The staff will also fit as many smoke alarms as they think necessary. Bucks Fire & Rescue currently provide British Standard smoke alarms with a sealed battery that should last 10 years in normal use.
As an option in certain premises, they may fit heat detectors. Their staff will ask you to sign an indemnity form for any alarms that they fit. By signing this you accept the responsibility for maintaining the alarms they have provided.
They can also point you in the direction of other local services that are there to help you.
Is there a waiting list?
Your local station will contact you to arrange an appointment convenient for you. There is a waiting list for this service because it is so popular. Thank you for your patience!
How much does this all cost?
The Home Fire Risk Check, and any alarms we provide and fit during that check, are entirely FREE.
Alarms for people who are deaf or hard of hearing
If you are deaf or hard of hearing you may well not be able to hear the smoke alarms that we fit during Home Fire Risk Checks. If that is the case we can still help provide you with an appropriate smoke alarm system. We will, with your consent, pass your details to the RNID who will arrange a hearing assessment for you. Subject to the results of that assessment, they will loan you a special smoke alarm system which is suitable for your needs.
