Fire Brigade Come To Visit

Published: 22/05/2019

A special visit by the London Fire Brigade starts a new partnership that will support our customers and Care Assistants to remain safe. 

We had a visit from the London Fire Brigade this December, where they met with some of our Team leaders, Care supervisors and the Customer Services team.

At the forefront off all that we do is the health and safety of our Care Assistants and customers and so meeting with the London Fire Brigade to establish a partnership was really important to us.  They were able to give us excellent and useful information including: 

- What we should look for when doing a fire risk assessment in a customer’s home and
- Fire detection and prevention equipment that is available freely to vulnerable people.

As part of our partnership, Bluebird Care staff can now make referrals for all our customers to receive a free Home Fire Safety Visit (HFSV) at which the Fire Brigade will assess their smoke detector requirements and install one free of charge if they need one!

​By working together, we can ensure that more vulnerable individuals receive the Home Fire Safety Visit service and remain safe whilst at home.
