A Safe & Well visit is a completely free service offered by Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service to help keep our communities safe in their homes.
In support of the national strategy relating to the coronavirus outbreak, we are looking at ways to deliver our work in a different way to prevent the inadvertent spread of the virus amongst vulnerable people.
Your safety is really important to us but, during these circumstances, instead of visiting you in your home, we would like to call you via telephone. This would be at a convenient time, to provide advice on how you can stay safe. Following the telephone conversation, we will contact you at a later date to arrange a visit when the coronavirus control measures have been reduced.
The Safe & Well discussion will cover topics such as:
- Using electricity safely
- Cooking safely
- Making an escape plan
- What to do if there is a fire
- Keeping children safe
- Good practice – night time routine and other points relevant to you
- Identifying and discussing any further support you may need if necessary
To request a free Safe & Well telephone appointment, please call 0800 038 2323 or alternatively you can enter your postcode below and follow the instructions.
A selection of free leaflets containing useful information on safety in and around the home are available here.
