Reduce your risk of house fires: Free home safety surveys

Authored on
Bloomington Briefing Published April 5, 2023
Updated on April 5, 2023

Did you know that the majority of fire-related deaths and injuries happen at home? The Bloomington Fire Department wants to help you make your home safer and reduce the risk of fires through its free home safety survey program.

What should you expect during a survey inspection? A fire inspector will check your home and offer fire safety tips. They will help you with your family’s escape plan, cooking safety and general fire safety. If needed, the fire inspector will assist you with installing a battery-powered smoke alarm, carbon monoxide alarm and StoveTop FireStops®, free while supplies last.

Inspections typically last less than an hour. An adult must be present during the inspection. A copy of the inspection findings will be given to the resident along with suggestions.

To schedule a home safety survey, call 952-563-8933 or request a home safety inspection online at Appointments are available Monday – Friday, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
