Help Your Fire & Rescue Service

With the University of York, Humberside Fire and Rescue Service is undertaking a research project to evaluate its safety visits, known as Safe and Well visits.

Safe and Well visits provide information on staying safe in your home from fire, reducing the chance of falls in the home and ways to prevent social isolation. They are an important part of helping to keep people safe.

The Fire Service are looking for volunteers over the age of 65 to join a people's panel, where they will ask questions about the visits and review information handed out at them. This will be initially via an online meeting through a website app called Zoom. For more information and to take part, please contact by email Rachel Cunningham-Burley rachel.cunningham-burley@york.ac.uk
