Protecting the vulnerable & the elderly

One day, free to attend seminar :

"Protecting the elderly and vulnerable from fires in residential care premises and specialised housing"

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:

1000 Registration
