Community News: Royston Fire Station – Free Home Fire & Safety Check


You have the opportunity to have a FREE Home Fire Safety Check carried out by Hertfordshire Fire & Rescue Service. This isn’t just to check that you have working smoke detectors but to inform you of the most up to date fire safety advice available.

Our firefighters are exposed to multiple incidents that happen at home, and with prior knowledge, these could have been avoided.

Common issues found in properties include:

  • Smoke detection out of date, incorrectly sited, or faulty
  • No escape plan
  • Internal doors being left open
  • Overloaded power sockets
  • Unsafe charging of mobile phones, E-Scooters and electrical devices

Whilst carrying out your Home Fire Safety Check the officer will also able to identify if you have any other needs where partner agencies may be able to assist you. This includes Adult & Youth Care Services, Meals on Wheels and Herts Help.
