EDP; "1 in 9 firms fail fire safety tests in Norfolk"

Would you pass the fire safety tests?

Norfolk Fire and Rescue service has revealed that one in nine premises failed fire safety tests in 2020/21.

The fire service carried out 370 fire safety audits across 2020/21 and deemed 40 of the businesses unsatisfactory.

Now, they are urging Norfolk businesses not to overlook fire safety by backing Business Safety Week from September 6 until 12.

Proudly Norfolk Sponsors, Red Cat Partnership say:

"Fire risk assessments and fire safety training are part of our "bread and butter". We'd not expect our clients to be within those "1 in 9". For a small and simple business, fire risk assessment and the related precautions need not be complex, and are indeed "common sene". More complex sites, however, may need a helping hand."

If you would like book an assessment, please get in touch with Red Cat Partnership.
