Fire Protection Performance Information
One of the cornerstones of the work of the Fire and Rescue Service is in the area of Fire Protection. This work is focused on supporting compliance with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 so that the non-domestic buildings in which people work, visit and enjoy leisure time are provided with facilities that will ensure a safe means of escape in the event of a fire starting. This assistance may take the form of educational events, signposting to relevant guidance and the checking or auditing of fire protection measures.
North Wales Fire and Rescue Authority's mission statement is to make 'North Wales a safer place to live, work and visit'. We are committed to improved, smarter regulation that promotes business growth and, where non-compliance is identified, provides support and the opportunity for dialogue in relation to guidance, requirements or decisions to achieve compliance with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. This approach is in line with the principles of the Regulators' Code 2014.
There are approximately 28,000 non-domestic properties in North Wales and our Business Fire Safety activities are targeted at those premises that we believe present the greatest risk of death or injury from fire.
