BOC Healthcare has worked very closely with the FRS to develop a working partnership to improve the safety of all our patients. At risk patients may be eligible for a free visit from the community fire safety officer, which includes a discussion on fire safety and safe exit routes in the event of a fire.
Please contact your local FRS for further information. If a patient is found not to have a working smoke alarm/detector in their property the local FRS will be informed on a weekly basis. Patients who ignore fire safety advice e.g. smoking on or around oxygen therapy will also be referred to their local FRS.
