Fire safety information is available on Directgov in languages other than English – including Bengali, Urdu, Chinese and Polish. You can print out and keep the information. If you know someone who is a non-English speaker, you can do this on their behalf.

Information on the ‘Fire Kills’ website

Fire Kills is the national fire safety publicity campaign run by the government, in partnership with local fire and safety services. It aims to make people more aware of the risks of fire in the home and how to prevent it. From the Fire Kills website, you can download additional information that is aimed at the Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Chinese, Somali and Polish communities. 

You can also watch and listen to various TV and radio adverts that have been broadcast in recent years.

A home visit from your local Fire and Rescue Service

Some fire and rescue services offer a free home fire safety visit to people living within their area. They will inspect your home to help you spot any potential fire risks – and show you what to do to reduce or prevent them.

They can also help you to develop an escape plan for your property.
