Most fire services in the UK offer a free home inspection service to look at any fire hazards in your home, advise where to put smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, and offer other advice to make your home safer and reduce the risk of fire. If you are a childminder or you have children, then taking up the offer of a free home fire safety inspection may just turn out to save someone's life one day.
Inspections are offered for free because it is in each fire service's own interests that their constituency is made as safe as possible - although tackling blazes is their priority concern, firefighters would rather be advising on fire safety than having to fight a real fire, especially a domestic fire where a family is involved.
