Are you worried about fire safety at your premises? Have you got a clear fire emergency plan that doesn’t rely on the fire brigade? How would your staff deal with a fire in the middle of the night? These are common concerns we hear from the care home sector, but they needn’t be daunting or expensive to plan for.
At PrePro we provide practical, sensible and effective fire safety advice. We specialise in the care home and sheltered accommodation sectors. We work closely with our clients to build mutual trust, give you continued peace of mind and ensure compliance with fire safety legislation.
Give yourself a basic fire health-check right now: Do you have a fire risk assessment that has been reviewed in the past 12 months? Are the outcomes sensible and easy to understand? Do you have a working and serviced fire alarm with automatic fire detection in every room? Do you have fully operational fire doors that you check regularly? Have all staff had evacuation training? Are there Personal Emergency Evacuation Plans (PEEPs) specifically for vulnerable residents? If the answer is ‘no’ to any of these questions, then you will not be compliant with fire safety legislation.
It’s generally not the risks you know about that will cause you a problem, it’s the ones that you don’t… we offer helpful advice and guidance on all fire related matters. Please get in touch for further information or take a look at our website to learn about us, our qualifications and experience.
“We have been very impressed with the approach that Chris and Jon have taken towards fire safety arrangements across our premises. Their fire risk assessment reports have provided us with robust fire safety compliance for our property portfolio based on their extensive knowledge and experience in the sector. Their advice is simple, consistent and effective and can always be evidenced in published guidance. Their approach of “challenge and change” would be invaluable to any organisations who want to review and enhance fire safety arrangements in their premises in a cost effective manner and I would highly recommend their services”.
