\ Fire Suppression for Care Homes \ With an ageing population the demand for Care and Nursing Homes is set to increase dramatically over the next few years. These Care Homes whether they be new builds or conversions demand the highest level of fire protection to keep their residents safe from the risk of fire. Fireworks Fire Protection have been installing specialist suppression and detection systems to this sector for over 10 years and have seen the demand rise as the level of protection has increased. Should a fire start it is vital that early detection and prompt action is taken to increase the chances of survivability. In an emergency it is the smoke which is the killer not the flames so urgent intervention will give staff crucial moments to take the correct emergency action. All care home operators should, by now, have heard of the Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order (RRFSO), but how many are clear about their obligations under this order and the consequences of failing to meet them?

Introduced in October 2006, the RRFSO is the legal framework for fire safety in non-domestic premises throughout the UK. Its introduction swept away the old regime of fire safety certificates issued by the Fire

Service and, in its place, established a new approach to fire safety based on risk assessments carried out by a “competent person” acting on behalf of the “responsible person”.

Fireworks Fire Protection use the very latest high and low pressure watermist technology which limits damage and takes the heat and oxygen out of the fire triangle thus controlling the fire and giving time for staff and the emergency services to act. The gentle action of water mist is also far less traumatic for elderly and vulnerable residents than conventional sprinkler systems. Official fire tests prove that our water mist fire systems continue to keep the environment survivable for a considerable time after the fire has begun. • Latest water mist technology • Early detection • Survivable environment • Helps to increase the evacuation time • Save for Staff, Residents and the environment
