London Fire Brigade

Fire safety in the community

We work closely with the communities we serve to make London a safer place to live, work and visit. Making and keeping London safe from fires and other emergencies is at the heart of all that we do - but you have a role to play too.

Help us to promote fire safety

If you have friends, family or neighbours that could benefit from fire safety advice, tell them about our home fire safety visits service. We are particularly keen to visit older or vulnerable people as they are more likely to be hurt in a fire. Call 08000 28 44 28 to arrange a visit.

Tell us about risks

If you see a fire risk in the community, a building owner ignoring fire regulations for instance – contact your local fire and community safety centre.

Think before you park

If roads are blocked and a fire engine can't get through, time could be lost getting to a fire. It could mean the difference between life and death. Please don’t park on or next to fire hydrants, in front of exits, across access routes or in front of barriers. You may stop a fire engine getting through.

Help us to stop vehicle fires

Many stolen vehicles are set on fire. Please avoid your car being stolen by removing the keys and locking it at all times, by using an anti-theft device and not leaving property in your vehicle. You should report abandoned vehicles to the police or your local authority.
