Protect what you love

Fire safety is so important to keep your home and the people you love safe. But it can be hard to know what help you need. Our Home Fire Safety Checker will assess the level of risk in your home with a few questions and suggest fire safety actions just for you. This could be booking a visit from one of our crews or some tailored online advice.



Summer heatwave: special recognition for firefighters

Last summer, when temperatures topped 40C, an unprecedented number of fires broke out across London, but Havering suffered particularly badly with fires in Wennington. That’s why crews from fire stations across Havering received special appreciation from the borough’s Mayor at an awards ceremony this month.



From London to Lincoln

Our Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) crews headed to Lincoln recently to spend two days testing all the skills they’ve learnt over the year, confirming their knowledge and understanding.




Food delivery with a side order of fire risk

We’ve been called to an e-bike or e-scooter fire once every two days this year. So in our latest effort to reduce that number, firefighters have been out on the streets meeting delivery drivers, who often use these vehicles. They’ve been talking about the risks associated with lithium batteries found on e-bikes and e-scooters, and how to reduce them.
