Smoke AlarmFire + Rescue NSW is currently running a program offering free home Safety Visits to help people understand fire safety and prevention around the home. The includes a local fire station crew attending the homes and offering tailored fire safety information to the residents. Free smoke alarms would also be installed if required.

Everyone can benefit from a Safety Visit, however there are people within our communities that are statistically at higher risk of incidents occurring, including:

▪ Over 65’s.
▪ Those who live alone.
▪ People with limited mobility, hearing impairments or vision impairments.
▪ Residents who are supported by carers, family and friends.
▪ And anyone with English as a second language.

To organise a Safety Visit, contact the Bathurst Fire Station on (02) 6332 5634.
