Fire safety guidance for high-rise homes

10 December 2019

Article: 53/4908

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, which is produced by the Scottish Government and the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) , 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 these property types.

Guidance has also been published for those responsible for fire safety in high-rise buildings, including councils, housing associations, owners and private landlords. Publishing such guidance was one of the recommendations of the Ministerial Working Group on Building and Fire Safety.
