The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service is taking all necessary measures to minimise disruption to our emergency response during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

We have robust contingency plans in place should we encounter a high number of absences among firefighters and staff to ensure we continue to respond to every emergency to protect Scotland's communities.

This includes the temporary suspension of Home Fire Safety Visits. The service will continue to provide safety advice to the public and our staff. We will adapt our response to the situation and issue information and guidance as necessary.
