A fire risk assessment is a survey of a premises, identifying fire and associated risks. It is a means of assisting the responsible person to comply with fire regulations, and to devise protective and preventative fire safety measures, necessary to protect staff, property, and visitors to the premises.
Planning an effective response to an outbreak of fire in a building and the orderly evacuation of people from it without injury or distress requires careful consideration and attention by management, particularly in complex buildings and when disabled or vulnerable people are likely to be present.
As with any life safety device, fire doors should be regularly inspected and maintained to ensure that they will work properly in an emergency and to comply with fire safety regulations. Firesure can inspect your fire doors to BS 8214 to determine their condition and any remedial measures required.
Firesure provide fire escape plans conforming to BS ISO 23601:2009, an international standard that provides a system of communicating escape routes in buildings that minimises the use of words. A visual fire escape plan complements the building's fire safety signage and way guidance system.
Firesure provide inspection, testing, maintenance, and certification services for undergound fire hydrants and for wet and dry barrel pillar fire hydrants in accordance with BS 9990:2015, BS 5306-1, and NFPA 25. We also provide GPS positioning and layout plans for the Fire Service.
Regular inspection and testing of a dry riser installation is an essential means of ensuring that it will work as required in an emergency. Dry riser installations should be visually inspected every six months and should be hydrostatically pressure-tested and certified to BS 9990:2015 every year.
Fire extinguishers must be inspected and maintained annually in accordance with the requirements of I.S. 291:2002. Firesure provide inspection, maintenance and refilling services for all makes and types of fire extinguishers to keep your equipment in excellent working order.
Automatic fire suppression equipment provides an essential means of protecting assets when no-one is available to extinguish a fire with a portable fire extinguisher or where it is not possible to do so, such as in confined or restricted spaces or where there is a risk of explosion.
