Hazards to older people
One area of safety in the home that fire and rescue services have looked at is the hazards to older people around slips, trips and falls. The impact on an older person of a fall in the home can be substantial and puts pressure on ambulance and other health services, which are already experiencing increasing levels of demand. Anything fire and rescue service staff can do to prevent falls happening in the first place is a real benefit.
85% of people put themselves at risk when testing their smoke alarm by:
- Standing on a chair
- Standing on a stepladder
- Leaning over a banister or stairway
