The organisation have funded £600 worth of fire safety equipment and also agreed to promote the free Home Fire Risk Check service to all new tenants. The Home Fire Risk Check service involves firefighters or technicians visiting properties to fit safety equipment such as smoke alarms, identify fire hazards and discuss escape routes.

Watch Manager Ed Case said: "This contribution demonstrates how highly Moorlands Housing values the safety and the quality of life of tenants in their 3000 properties. We’d urge all new and existing tenants to take up the offer of free Home Fire Risk Check - it may just save the lives of you and your family."

Moorlands Housing’s Community Safety Officer, Andy Dunning, said, "Any initiative that helps protect our customers and make them feel safe in their homes is a priority. We are very pleased to be working in partnership with the Fire & Rescue Service towards achieving this goal."
