About Us

Firescout is owned and operated by one of the UK's leading fire safety companies, Safelincs Ltd. We created this website to allow you to publish photos of bad fire safety practice you came across and to allow us all to learn from these examples. Seeing a bad example is a much more powerful way of learning than a written article about some dos and don'ts. We are adding professional comments to the photos received and explain how the reported problems could be resolved. We do not name and shame and we will keep the locations of the fire safety breaches anonymous. If you come across a really dangerous practice, you should therefore contact the fire service.
