Fire safety - existing specialised housing and similar premises: practical guidance

Guidance for those who are responsible for specialised housing and for those who provide care and support in such premises.


This Guidance applies to existing specialised housing and similar premises in Scotland. It draws on the content of the guidance issued for England and Wales entitled, “Fire Safety in Specialised Housing” (NFCC, 2017) and “Mobility Scooter Guidance for Residential Buildings” (NFCC, 2018). We wish to thank the National Fire Chiefs Council for permitting the use of text, diagrams and photographs from their guides. Annex 4 contains a range of assisted care technologies kindly reproduced with permission from London Fire Brigade.
