Steps to a safer environment for you or a loved one with physical challenges
1. Contact the Stokes County Fire Marshals office at 593-2083 or email us your name, address and telephone number.
2. You will receive a call to schedule an appointment.
3. The Fire Marshal will come out to your home - assess your home for fire dangers, draw the layout of your home and put stickers in areas of the home that would make you or your loved one easily accessible for emergency responders.
4. Once your home has been visited by the Fire Marshal’s Office they will contact Stokes County Communications and make them aware of you. In the event of an emergency situation Fire Departments, Emergency Management and Law Enforcement would be notified that there is a physically challenged person in the home.
Physically Challenged doesn’t necessarily mean you are bedridden or in a wheelchair it can be any condition that could cause difficulty in communicating with Emergency Responders in the event of an emergency.
