hosted by London Fire Brigade
organised by the British Automatic Fire Sprinkler Association
15th March 2017
London Fire Brigade Headquarters 169 Union Street SE1 0LL
Building control, planning and housing & social care departments, housing associations, the fire and rescue services, residential care providers and developers are increasingly interested in learning how automatic fire sprinklers can provide cost - effective protection of people and property. Attending this BAFSA event will provide a greater understanding of how sprinklers :
- prevent fire deaths - reduce damage to property - protect firefighters
- reduce the impact of fire on the environment - provide business continuity support
Although the annual fire statistics indicate a reduction in the number of fire deaths and injuries it is clear that there are certain groups who are more susceptible to a poor outcome should fire occur. Among these are the elderly and infirm and one of the major reasons for this is their inability to escape quickly from fire. One major contributor to reducing the effects of fire and allowing more time for escape or rescue has been the introduction of automatic fire suppression in dwelling spaces .
The outline programme for the day is as follows:
1035 High fire risk characteristics of residents, issues & solutions
1105 Protecting the vulnerable in care
1205 Sheffield Low Rise Retrofit project
1340 Sprinkler effectiveness
1420 A firefighter’s perspective
We believe that our delegates will leave this seminar with a greater understanding of how automatic fire sprinklers will saves lives and protect the vulnerable from fire. Refreshments will be provided throughout the day and there will be ample time for networking with your fellow professionals and sprinkler experts. We would like to invite you and your colleagues to attend this seminar on 15th March 2017
We hope to see you at London Fire Brigade Headquarters 169 Union Street SE1 0LL on 15th March.
