Abstract Fire & rescue services play a significant role in helping people to live safely and independently. This includes reducing the risk of unintentional injuries at home such as falls and problems associated with social isolation and dementia. 'Fire as a Health Asset' is a national drive that will strengthen the partnership between fire & rescue services, the NHS, public health and the voluntary sector. This initiative includes widening the scope of existing home safety checks into 'safe and well' visits. Kent Fire & Rescue Service (KFRS) and Kent County Council Public Health are using advanced analytics to support older people's health using the Kent Integrated (linked) Dataset programme. KFRS data was successfully linked with health care data to evaluate outcomes using a matched case control approach towards analyses. Results have established a baseline for KFRS on the health impacts of their service, generated insights on data quality and innovation in the methods of data matching across NHS and non NHS data. Two identifiers were used to link data; one at a person level (NHS number) and the other at household level (UPRN). It also led to the improvements in data collection and data quality for the roll out of 'Safe and Well' Visits going forward. The work has fed into national discussions to design better evaluation methods to estimate the relative impacts of Safe & Well Visits on population health. This analysis has proved the concept and tested the methodology which will now be developed to allow further analytical research.
