Fire Kills

Fire Kills

You are around 8 times more likely to die from a fire if you don’t have a working smoke alarm in your home. We support the Home Office’s Fire Kills campaign. Helping to raise awareness of the importance working smoke alarms play in saving lives.

As part of the Government’s commitment to help prevent fatalities and injuries from accidental fires, the Home Office in collaboration with the National Fire Chiefs Council and local Fire and Rescue Services, runs the Fire Kills campaign to keep people safe in their homes.

The campaign is aimed at raising awareness of everyday fire risks that are present in the home and encourages all householders in England, particularly vulnerable people, to test their smoke alarms regularly.

For advice specific to you and your home, visit and complete your own home fire safety check.
