Firefighter Protection

Fire prevention and protection has long played a key role in reducing the incidence of fire related deaths and injuries through their role and partnership arrangements with fire and rescue policies. The Fire and Rescue Service has an excellent reputation for dealing with emergency incidents even if this may involve firefighters putting their lives at risk. what a lot of managers and duty holders are not aware of is whilst they have a duty of care to employees and those on the premises, they also have a responsibility to ensure that the conditions on the premises are not such, that they would put a firefighters life at danger when responding to an incident. A risk assessment that is suitable and sufficient will take this into consideration.
