New Fire Safety Rules for Residential Care Homes
Updates to the British Standard for Fire Alarms BS5839-1

The current UK legislation has been updated and re-issued in regards to care home fire safety, wherever you are based in the United Kingdom. The New British Standard was revised in 2013 in relation to the specification of fire alarms in residential care homes and it is now a requirement that all elements are met to remain compliant.

Care homes must now employ the help and support of a trusted, quality third party accredited fire safety provider and also review their current fire risk assessment to ensure it reflects the New British Standard.. This is where Contact Fire and Security of Oxford can help.

With over 34 years of experience, we are able to advise on all aspects of fire safety to keep your care home legally compliant and safe so please do not hesitate to get in touch today.

What are the amendments to the New British Standard?

There have been several updates to the current UK Fire System legislation including the fact that it is important to give accurate and unambiguous information to staff regarding the location of a fire especially if critical to the safety of life in premises such as residential care homes and hospitals.

Other amendments include the need for rapid summoning of the fire and rescue services in the event of a fire, appreciating that it is sometimes necessary to use only an addressable system in some cases, but where occupants of a building need assistance from staff to evacuate the building, the fire detection and fire alarm system should be accessible, if the premises sleeps more than 10 people.

Furthermore, a secondary automatic means of transmission might be warranted if the early attendance of rescue services is essential to safety in the event of a fire and a 'Responsible Person' must ensure that the premises are equipped for fire-fighting equipment, fire alarms and fire detectors.

The chosen 'Responsible Person' must arrange any necessary contacts with external services, in terms of rescue work, fire fighting, first aid and emergency medical care.

With this in mind, it is strongly recommended that ALL residential care premises carry out and review risk assessments so the New British Standards are taken into account.
