Carer helps elderly man
Friday, 14 September, 2018

The London Fire Brigade have provided, free of charge, an elearning module aimed at home carers and housing providers to help identify key fire risks and hopefully prevent fires from starting in the first place.  The course takes approximately 1 hour to complete and covers:

  • warning signs such as cigarette burns in carpets, or smoking whilst drinking alcohol that workers visiting families in their own homes may observe;
  • preventative measures such as fitting smoke alarms via LFB Home Fire Safety Visits and the use of fire retardant bedding; and
  • the importance of referring those at high risk to either adult or children's social care.
