Fire safety guidance for high-rise homes

Scottish Fire and Rescue Service report that residents in high-rise properties are being given leaflets outlining how to prevent fires in the home and what to do if one starts in their building.

The advice, produced by the Scottish Government and the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, is being delivered to high-rise homes from December and will also be available in libraries and community centres in all 15 local authorities with the properties.

Guidance is also being published for those responsible for fire safety in high-rise buildings, including councils, housing associations, owners and private landlords.

Further information can be viewed at the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service website.

Information providing practical fire safety advice on how to prevent fires and reduce the risks from fires in high rise domestic buildings is available from the Scottish Government.

Publishing such guidance was one of the recommendations of the Ministerial Working Group on Building and Fire Safety.

Life Property Management actively promote the provision of high standards and operational best practice and engage with the Scottish Government and other relevant agencies on matters relating to heritable property in Scotland.
