Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service wants to help you to stay safe from fire at home, at a time when the cost of living is rising.

If you're thinking about doing things differently at home to bring down the price of your bills, it's important to remember to do so safely. This can include thinking about the hazards that come with changing your usual routine.

Due to the cost of living rise, it is now more important than ever to:

  • fit a working smoke alarm on every floor of your home, so you’re alerted quickly if there is a fire.
  • find out if you are eligible for a Home Fire Safety Assessment.
  • follow our advice below.
