Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service has launched a new initiative to help improve the health of potentially vulnerable people this being Safe and Well Visits.

These visits will build on the Service’s successful Home Safety Assessment program that has helped protect people throughout Cheshire from the risk of fire in their home.


Safe and Well Visits will be offered to residents who are aged over 65 or who are referred to the Service by partner agencies.

The visits will still incorporate the traditional fire safety information but will also offer additional advice on:

Slips, trips and fall prevention, Bowel cancer screening. additional support to those who wish to stop smoking, reduce their alcohol consumption.

It is expected that over the next year the visits will be extended further to provide extra help to people who have just been discharged from hospital after a fall and to address hypertension and blood pressure concerns.
