If you are a formal (e.g. domiciliary care worker, support worker or clinician) or informal carer (e.g. family member, friend or neighbour) and are caring for someone in their own home, the London Fire Brigade Carers Guide to Home Fire Safety will help you identify fire risks and show you what you can do to reduce them.

The video will show you:

  • How to recognise people who are at risk of having a fire
