Merseyside were deployed to Utting Avenue and surrounding roads.
Firefighters and fire prevention staff carried out 103 Home Fire Safety Checks, fitted smoke alarms and delivered fire safety leaflets.
Watch Manager Phil Byrne said: “Hundreds of homes were visited during the campaign.
“Staff offered fire safety advice, highlighting the importance of having a smoke alarm fitted on each floor of the property and testing them every week.
“They also urged smokers to ensure cigarettes are stubbed out properly, are not left unattended and are in
a proper ashtray that will not topple over. Residents were also encouraged to check on elderly or vulnerable neighbours, who may be more at risk of a fire.
“We hope the work we carried out in the community will help prevent a serious fire in the future.”
Terry Joyce, 56, a resident whose home on Utting Avenue was visited during the campaign, said: “I think the campaign is a good idea, especially for older residents.
I think people should try and look after their neighbours.”
An MF&RS arson officer was also in the area detecting fly-tipping and dumped materials
that are in danger of being targeted and deliberately set on fire.
