Free Safety and Fire Awareness Inspection
What is Safehome?
Safehome is an initiative designed to assist householders to conduct a safety and fire awareness inspection of their home. You will be assisted to recognise fire and safety hazards in and around the home. Once the hazards are identified you can then take steps to eliminate them.
Who is Safehome available to?
All people who are concerned with improving safety in their home.
What is the cost to the householder?
This is a free service provided by Queensland Fire & Rescue Service in the interest of developing a safer community. All homes have different requirements but a visit should take no longer than 45 minutes.
How to book a visit
If you would like to take the opportunity to invite a firefighter into your home for a visit, do so by phoning 1300 369 003.
When you book your safehome visit before the 14th of July, you can ask for a free "fire blanket" to be sent out.

All eyes were on the radiant bride as her father escorted her down the aisle.
They reached the altar and the waiting groom; the bride kissed her father and placed something in his hand. The guests in the front pews responded with ripples of laughter. Even the priest smiled broadly.
As her father gave her away in marriage, the bride gave him back his credit card.

If you think you are beaten, you are,
If you think you dare not, you don't,
If you'd like to win but think you can't,
it's almost a cinch you won't,
Life's battles don't always go
to the stronger or faster man,
But sooner or later the man who wins,
Is the man who thinks he can?
