Fire safety

From 23 January, those responsible for fire safety in high rise residential buildings in England must by law provide information to fire and rescue services. Residents will now have better access to information about the fire safety measures in place in their buildings.

Working with industry leaders, the Fire Sector Federation has launched an initiative calling for wider discussion to create a national fire safety strategy, which goes beyond current legislative proposals, to comprehensively address measures to mitigate fire risk in the UK.
