Fire safety in your home

Fires can start at any time of the year, but some occasions carry greater risk.  Download the guides for seasonal risks on the GOV.UK website.

Birmingham City Council works closely with West Midlands Fire and Rescue Service and encourage all residents to request a Safe and Well visit if you have concerns on the West Midlands Fire and Rescue Service website
