Could you live with the consequences of not checking that vulnerable relatives, friends and neighbours have working smoke alarms in their homes?
If you or someone you know needs a smoke alarm, call the London Fire Brigade free on 08000 28 44 28 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Could you live with yourself if you didn’t?
The winter months can potentially spell danger for older people in the capital. Nearly 60 per cent of people who die in fires are aged 60 or over and the winter period is the time of greatest risk as use of heaters and cooking appliances increases.
That’s why our Could you live with yourself? campaign targets vulnerable older people at boroughs throughout London where fires and fire deaths are high.
Hundreds of people across London have already called our freephone number or emailed us to request a home fire safety check.
The campaign aims to cut the number of fire-related deaths among the over 60s in London. It’s also aimed at the people who look after older people such as Social Services, including home helps and elderly care teams, carer groups, neighbours or a family member anyone with a direct link to older people.
We’ve written to London boroughs, housing trusts, charities and voluntary groups to help get our message across and we’ll also be giving talks to voluntary groups and community organisations across London.
Older people or members of their family and carers are asked to contact our freephone number to book a home fire safety check.
As well as offering free home fire safety checks to older people, we’ll also be installing 10-year smoke alarms. These are free of charge for older people where needed.
I will be holding a Street Meeting on Schubert Road SW15 on Tuesday 10th December 2013 from 1800-1830 hours.
