Each visit will be carried out by at least two staff from Meath County Council Fire Service who will be wearing Fire Service uniform and will carry a Meath County Council photographic identification card.
During the visit they will either fit a smoke alarm or show you how to test your existing smoke alarm, explain the potential fire risks in your home, provide fire safety advice and explain the importance of having a night time fire safety routine and a fire escape plan. The visit will take up to 40 minutes.

The specific Householders in general are as follows:
- Old age pensioners (>65)
- Lone parent householders
