Protecting High-rise residential buildings from fire

3rd March 2021 10:30am - 11:30am

For buildings with flammable cladding, the NFCC (National Fire Chiefs Council) recommends a change in evacuation strategy, supported by the introduction of temporary protection measures, such as ‘Waking Watch’ or a fire detection system, until the cladding is removed. If the remedial works are expected to take longer than 12 months, the NFCC strongly recommends the installation of fire alarm system as a more reliable, safe and cost effective solution to a Waking Watch.

In this webinar, we will be exploring the Apollo & Advanced solution which provides superior protection for residents, is fully compliant with NFCC guidance and offers fast installation with minimal disruption for occupants. We will also discuss how this system can be later adapted to convert to the Evacuation and Alert system in line with BS8629 code of practice.

Tall buildings expert Russ Timpson will also discuss what information you should provide to firefighters when they are responding to a fire in a high risk residential building (HRRB), and the fire growth and smoke movement requires a change of the existing/established evacuation strategy, i.e. stay put to simultaneous

All attendees will receive CPD points from The Insitute of Fire Safety Managers (IFSM) for attending.
