FIRE SAFETY IN CARE HOMES

We work with residential and nursing home owners to ensure robust and cost effective fire protection for residents and staff.

Keeping your residents and patients safe from the danger of fire

Fire can be devastating in any building, but the dangers are magnified in a care home setting where residents may not be able to escape unaided. A crucial responsibility for any care home manager or owner is to carry out a thorough risk assessment of the premises to assess the various hazards and how they can be addressed. 

This government fire safety booklet offers a detailed guide to risk assessment responsibilities in residential care premises, but if you feel daunted by the task of carrying out risk assessments in-house, it's wise to contact an accredited fire safety company for expert advice and peace of mind.

Essential guide to fire safety in residential care premises

If you run a nursing or residential home for children, adults or the elderly, what are the key points to remember when it comes to fire safety? As an absolute minimum, you must:

  • Carry out fire risk assessments on a regular basis
  • Ensure fire safety equipment is well maintained 
  • Keep escape routes clear at all times
  • Train staff in fire prevention and what to do in an emergency
  • Hold regular drills to ensure both staff and residents can safely evacuate a premises
  • Store any hazardous chemicals or flammable materials according to instructions
