Home Fire Safety Visits

Fire and Emergency New Zealand offer free Home Fire Safety Visits to people, family and whanau who require fire safety advice. This includes:

  • Checking smoke alarms and providing advice on where they should be installed and how they should be maintained. We can also install alarms that you have purchased.
  • Talking through escape plans and ensuring that everyone can get out of the home quickly and safety in the event of a fire, and that you have an agreed safe meeting place.
  • Discussing fire safety to ensure we cook, heat and live in our homes safely.

To enquire about a free Home Fire Safety visit you can enquire online, phone 0800 693 473 or call your local fire station. If you live in an area with a volunteer brigade there may not be anyone to take your call, so leave a message and we’ll call you back.

You can also create your own escape plan and learn more about fire safety using our online escape planner.
