Free – Home Fire Safety Visits
Scottish Fire & Rescue Service is dedicated to reducing the numbers of Accidental Domestic Fires and Fatalities.
Analysis of accidental dwelling fire data identifies cooking activities as the most common cause of fires within the home in West Dunbartonshire and also the most prevalent cause where fire related injuries are sustained by occupants. Falling asleep and distraction have been identified as the main contributory factors behind this.

All Domestic Dwellings will be required to have:
• One smoke alarm installed in the room most frequently
