Foreword








Over the past decade we have signiicantly reduced the 


number of accidental ire deaths and injuries across 


Merseyside.





Our free Home Fire Safety Checks and the proactive 


installation of more than 800,000 smoke alarms has made 


a major contribution to home safety and we know there are 


people alive today who would not have been had it not been 


for this campaign.




The Service now provides a more targeted approach to home 


ire safety, focusing our resources on the most at risk and 


hardest to reach. Vulnerable people often live in deprived 


areas, but can live anywhere on Merseyside. Through no fault 


of their own, lifestyle and health issues can also put people 


into our “at risk” categories. For example:





• Older people, especially those in domiciliary care.




• People who live alone.




• People with disabilities or mobility issues.




• Those suffering from mental ill health or dementia.




• Smokers.




• People suffering from drug or alcohol problems.
