Best practice advice for fire safety in flats

ARMA has issued a ‘Fire Safety Management in Flats’ Guidance Note to share best practice with professional Fire Safety personnel involved in the residential leasehold sector, including managing agents, developers and landlords.

The Guidance Note  (https://arma.org.uk/downloader/ty5/ARMA_Fire_Safety_Guidance_6.pdf) has been produced in line with statutory guidance and industry best practice and independently reviewed by Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service, ARMA’s Primary Authority Partner.

Dr Nigel Glen, CEO of ARMA, said: “ARMA members have access to over 100 Guidance Notes on a wide range of topics affecting leasehold properties.  This is the only one that has been made available to non-ARMA members, as we wish to promote Fire Safety industry-wide.

“Our commitment to Fire Safety includes running dedicated training, technical support and advice, and a 24/7 ARMA Crisis Line to support members in the event of an emergency”.
