The Fire Safety Advice Centre

ukThe Fire Safety Advice Centre provides free fire safety and fire prevention advice in the United Kingdom. Its resource library offers fire safety information for homes and businesses.

The principal fire safety legislation in England and Wales is The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and there are other fire safety legislations that cover specific situations. In addition British Standards, Codes of Practice and other documents offer guidance. This fire safety library offers information about the main fire safety legislation and documents as well as hopefully helpful general fire safety advice. Please note that all fire safety information is given to the best of our knowledge. Errors can occur and changes in legislation may not have been reflected in the documentation on this site.

The site was originally started for the Merseyside Fire Liaison Panel, which was a voluntary organisation and aimed to promote fire safety in the Merseyside area. After the Panel discontinued its work, Tom Sutton, a retired fire fighter, continued the running of the site and passed the site eventually to Safelincs in January 2011 to carry on promoting fire safety.

Looking to the future

Safelincs is working to expand the range of information offered on the site. If you would like to request information not yet covered in our contents, please contact us. Equally, if you want to share your specialist fire safety knowledge with other internet users, we are happy to hear from you.
