We understand the priorities of fire safety for residential properties. Whether you own, occupy or manage a residential dwelling or a large apartment building, RES has the experience and know-how to service and maintain all of the premises fire safety systems and measures.

There are stringent rules in place for premises which can be found in various legislation such as Building Regulations and The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 as well as British Standards and specific premises related guidance documents.

There are five main actions you need to take:

  1. Undertake and regularly review the premises Fire Risk Assessment.
  2. Install the necessary fire safety systems, equipment and measures.
  3. Train staff (and or provided information to occupiers) on the prevention of fire and in the premises fire procedures.
  4. Service and maintain all fire safety systems, equipment and measures at the relevant intervals to current British Standards.
  5. Keep a record of all of the premises fire safety related information and maintain a fire log book for the premises.
