Make the Call Campaign

Scotland’s firefighters are calling on communities to help stop preventable deaths in house fires – by making a five-minute phone call.

Make the Call is a hard-hitting appeal to carers, family, friends and of those who are at risk of serious injury or even death because of an accidental fire in their home.

The latest statistics show that more than 20 people who are over the age of 50, smoke and either have mobility issues, live alone, or use medical oxygen have already been injured, some seriously, by such fires between January 1 and April 30 this year.   Tragically, 12 of those people sadly passed away.

SFRS is now appealing to communities across Scotland to help save a life and consider home fire safety when checking in on vulnerable neighbours, patients, friends and family members during lockdown and to put them in touch with SFRS wherever possible using the free Home Fire Safety Visit phoneline.

As part of their commitment to building a safer Scotland they offer everyone in Scotland a free home fire safety visit. They will help you sort out a fire escape plan and provide information about smoke, heat and carbon monoxide alarms.

Get in touch with them, it's so easy to arrange:

§  call 0800 0731 999

§  text "FIRE" to 80800 from your mobile phone

§  complete their online formonline form

If you have decided that you want the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service to undertake a Home Fire Safety Visit, it is important that you understand how your personal information will be collected and used, and what rights you have when it comes to your information.
