A fire brigade in Sussex has launched a 12-month safety plan and asked the public to submit their views on it.
West Sussex Fire Brigade's plan aims to target high risk areas with safety checks and smoke detectors and step up programmes aimed at young people.
It also intends to educate "hard to reach" members of the community, such as migrant workers, about fire safety.
The brigade will present its proposals at local committee meetings across West Sussex.
A spokesman for the brigade said the plan was about preventing fires from happening.
"We are geared to responding to emergencies when they occur but we are also very conscious of the need to help people understand the inherent danger of fires," he said.
"This means we will continue to carry out educational and practical work to prevent such incidents occurring in the first place."
