Safety in the home


There are plenty of preventative measures you can take to make sure you stay as safe as possible in your home.

Fire Safety

In case of a fire emergency, phone the fire brigade on 999.

Preventing fires at home

It is important to make sure your home is as safe as possible and prevent fires.

You can find lots of advice on the government's (external link) website.

Get A Free Safety Check

You can ask the London Fire Brigade for a free fire safety check for your home. They can visit people and places where they know there is a greater risk of fire.

The fire fighters will give you advice about making your home safer and will fit a free smoke alarm if you need one.

Go to the London Fire Brigade (external link) website for advice on all aspects of fire safety and to fill in the online form (external link) so that you can apply for your safety check.

Home Security

Staying safe in your own home is especially important if you or someone you live with struggles with a health problem. This can make you more vulnerable to crime. However there are a number of things you can do to keep your home safe.

Adapting your home

There are a range of services available to help you maintain your independence at home. Services may be provided by Haringey Council, voluntary organisations or by private companies.
