Fire Risk Assessmentsin Council Buildings

Fire risk assessments are crucial at council buildings to ensure the safety of employees, visitors, and members of the public. These assessments are necessary to identify potential fire hazards, assess the likelihood of a fire occurring, and evaluate the potential impact of a fire.

Council buildings are often large and complex, with multiple levels, rooms, and exits, making it challenging to identify and manage fire risks effectively. Our professional fire risk assessments help to identify fire safety measures needed, such as fire extinguishers, smoke detectors, and emergency exits, and ensure that they are in place and functioning correctly.

Regular fire risk assessments are essential to maintaining a safe environment and complying with legal requirements.


Fire safety risk assessments for council premises completed by FireCare will examine the following:  

  • Your current fire prevention measures  
  • Identification of potential fire hazards within the building
  • Assessment of the likelihood of a fire starting and spreading
  • Evaluation of the effectiveness of current fire safety measures in place
  • Recommendations for any necessary improvements or changes to ensure the safety of occupants in the event of a fire

Having completed this assessment, FireCare would then provide further information and make informed recommendations based on our experience of fire safety audits within the care sector to ensure you stay safe and legal.

    Fire safety equipment is essential for council buildings to ensure the safety of occupants and prevent the loss of property. This equipment includes fire alarms, smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, emergency lighting, and sprinkler systems. Councils must ensure that all fire safety equipment is installed, maintained, and tested regularly to ensure it is in good working condition, which is where FireCare can help.
