Picture of 'This is our story'



Meet David. He’s a West Midlands resident in his eighties and was concerned about being safe at home.

He’s one of the thousands of people we help every year with one of our Safe and Well visits.

Those who are most vulnerable to fire and other risks at home often aren’t as confident or as steady as they used to be.

Our free visits include checking or fitting smoke alarms, as well as safety at home and on the roads, mobility and lifestyle, home security and more.

The same firefighters who respond to 999 calls also help people like Dave stay safe at home. With their permission, we’ll call on other organisations like the council if they need any specialist support.

Some of our staff can communicate in sign language and we can fit alarms linked to vibrating pillow pads and strobes for people with hearing issues.

Safe and Well visits are a big part of our work making the West Midlands safer, stronger and healthier – hit the button below to book one for yourself, a relative, a friend or someone you care for.
