Do Home Fire Safety Visits carried out by the Fire and Rescue Service reduce falls and improve wellbeing among older people?

Humberside Fire and Rescue Service (HFRS) is working with the University of York on a research project to see if Home Fire Safety Visits improve the wellbeing of older people and reduce the number of falls they have.

Commencing in April 2022, Humberside Fire and Rescue Service are going to invite selected residents in their area to take part in this research.

This study is being funded by the National Institute of Health Research. For more information about this study, please click the link below to the University of York website:
