Home's fire safety changes.
Clare, who is in a wheelchair, has mental and physical health disabilities and spends most of her time in her living room.
The portable misting system works in a similar way to a sprinkler system, but protects one room only. This system is linked to a smoke alarm, which when activated, starts the misting system spraying a fine mist into the room to cool the smoke and suppress the fire.
The system is also linked directly to Your Homes Newcastle's telecare service.
Clare said: "It's nice to know I've got that little bit more protection to help me keep safe."
District Manager Peter Iveson, Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service, said: "Due to her circumstances, and through joint work with Leazes Homes and Your Homes Newcastle, we have been able to provide Clare with even greater protection, through the portable misting system."
