Analysis of written responses to a consultation on fire and smoke alarms in Scottish homes.

Executive Summary

On 14 June 2017, a major fire spread rapidly through Grenfell Tower, a 24 storey residential high rise building in London. In the wake of this tragedy, in which 71 people lost their lives, the Scottish Government established a Ministerial Working Group to oversee a review of building and fire safety regulatory frameworks, in order to help ensure that people are safe in Scotland’s buildings, and to provide reassurance to residents and communities about their safety. As part of this work, the Group agreed that a consultation on fire and smoke alarms should be prioritised.
