Partner Information

Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service (GMFRS) offers Home Fire Safety Assessments (HFSA) to households across Greater Manchester.  

To support HFSA an Online Home Fire Safety Check (OHFSC) tool (internal webpage) is available, which households can use to help identify fire hazards in their home. The tool also suggests changes that can be easily made to reduce the risk of a fire.  

Partner agencies across Greater Manchester can also use the tool to make a third-party referral to GMFRS (internal webpage), and training is available to partners to explain the process and how to use the online tool. 

How you can help – seven simple steps 

This toolkit has been developed to encourage partners to support the promotion of the Online Home Fire Safety Check, the Home Fire Safety Assessment process and signpost to the fire safety advice on the GMFRS website.
