Local Action Teams

Local Action Teams are built on a foundation for partnership-working and project delivery. We recognise the need to get people to engage in community activities for the good of the community but understand the many pressures on individuals where time and money can be a barrier to action.

Home Fire Safety

Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue offer a home fire safety visit to people living within their fire station boundaries. This initiative has been highly successful in reducing accidental fires and deaths in the home. The home fire safety visits are carried out by trained personnel.

For a free home safety visit call 0800 73 11 822 or email firekills@dsfire.gov.uk.


Most fires could be prevented if people understood what to do, and what happens if they do not act. We work with young persons to ensure they all understand the dangers of fire, and that those who need it get extra help.

Many Fire & Rescue Services provide free school visits to raise fire safety awareness and you can by calling 0800 73 11 822 or emailing firekills@dsfire.gov.uk.
