How might firefighters reduce older people's falls?

Full description:

Firefighters conduct fire safety and other safe and well visits in people’s homes. We want to conduct research on what the impact of this is on older people, the fire service and NHS teams who support people who have had a fall.
Looking for people who have had a firefighter provide either fire safety or other advice to them in their home. OR, someone over the age of 65 who could reflect on the project from a potential user point of view.
