Warringtonfire’s on-going commitment to raise fire safety standards in the built environment has been clearly evident over recent months through a programme of educational seminars and live demonstrations.

Now in its ninth year, ‘Fire Protection in Buildings’, a half day seminar aimed at those with responsibility for the fire protection measures in their buildings under the RR(FS)O, is proving to be more popular than ever. In June and July, Warringtonfire ran two events at Birmingham City University and Imperial College, London.

Just under 250 delegates attended to learn more on topics including: legislation, passive fire protection, the importance of competency in the appointment of contractors, third party certification, the role of the Enforcing Officer and prosecutions brought under the RR(FS)O. The seminars are organised by Warringtonfire and supported by the Fire Service College, ASFP, NFCC and a leading law firm.

Warringtonfire continued its mission to raise fire safety standards at Firex International in June, when close to 350 people watched live demonstrations on how to correctly install fire doors and fire stopping products.

Rob Veitch EVP commented: “We believe strongly that we have a responsibility to help raise standards of fire protection in the built environment and to educate those responsible under the RR(FS)O about their responsibilities, the consequences of non-compliance and where they can go to get help.

“Over the past nine years, almost 3,500 individuals have benefited from attending our seminars and live demonstrations and the knowledge they gain will undoubtedly have helped to raise standards.”
