Re: DSEAR assessments?

When recommended by the FRA? :D I treat them as similar to lightning risk assessments. When the fire risk assessor recognises that it's out of their league, then they ought to be recommending a further specific risk assessment by a competent individual. Ha ha ha, these FRAs are recommending them, h...

Re: Travel distance to manual call point

Silly question time, I'm sorry... We have a large(ish) room (25m x 12m) which is used for places of assembly (can be up to 150 people at times). The room adjoins other rooms which then have fire / emergency exit doors. Do we need to have call points adjacent to the doors which leave the big room, o...

Re: Alarms in blocks of flats

How is the alarm system supposed to work in a block of flats? Every flat must have its own detector, but what about connecting to the main building alarm? I recently had someones smoke detector go off, but no building alarm. There were no obvious signs of fire and there appeared to be someone movin...
