What is a fire strategy?

Warringtonfire are able to help you create fire strategy for your building. A fire strategy is the way in which fire safety objectives for a new altered or existing building are defined and achieved. For new and altered buildings the fire strategy is usually developed during the design phase of the project. Our experts work with you to truly understand the objectives of your project and the completed building and create the best solution for you.

 According to the British Standards Institution document PAS 911: Fire Strategies-Guidance and Framework for Their Formulation, a fire strategy is “an all-encompassing document designed to overview how fire can impact on a building and a business”. If the worse happens and a fire breaks out in a building then it can not only be destructive to life safety but also to a business’s assets and ability to trade.

In order to limit the risks of fire the best approach would be to create a fire strategy during the construction phase and our engaged experts have a wealth of experience to create the best fire strategy for your project.

However, if the building is already operational then a fire strategy can be written in order to review the existing fire safety provision and provide a basis to inform the fire risk assessment process. The fire strategy is always developed to reflect the organisation’s policy on fire safety and operational requirements. 

What will your fire strategy include?

A good fire strategy should set a clear framework for fire safety and is usually based around showing compliance with the fundamental objectives of the applicable fire safety legislation, business and property protection objectives and insurers requirements.

A fire strategy means of warning and escape, internal fire spread, external fire spread and access and facilities for the fire service, along with the fire safety management requirements for the building.

A fire strategy can prove invaluable for due diligence purposes and where requirements for a strategic approach to managing fire risk needs to be considered in a wider business context. It is also important that the fire strategy is widely accepted by the ongoing business and that the recommendations are adhered to on a day-to-day basis. Our experts can help you communicate the importance of this strategy to your stakeholders and ensure this ongoing commitment
