Elderly Care

Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service

The home is generally regarded as the place where we feel safest, but it is also the place where the overwhelming majority of fire deaths and injuries occur. Many people are at risk from fire in the home, from families with young children to older people living alone. A fire can start very easily and spread with speed.
