RESPONDING TO FIRE ALARM ACTIVATIONS FROM 1 JULY 2023 (SCOTLAND)
Are you aware of the changes? Have you amended your procedures?
From 1 July 2023 Scottish Fire and Rescue Service have withdrawn their attendance to the automatic fire alarm (AFA) call outs to commercial business and workplace premises, such as factories, offices, shops, and leisure facilities. They will only attend if a fire has been confirmed. The responsibility to verify the alarm will be placed on the Duty Holders of the premises.
Please get in touch if you need help or if you are looking to appoint a professional Keyholding & Response Company. With our Keyholding Service we can help you to improve your organisation’s safety procedures and take on that responsibility for £1 a day.
