Fire Stations

Volume 451: debated on Tuesday 7 November 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what guidance her Department has issued on the installation of smoke alarms in (a) retained and (b) non-retained fire stations. (99582)

Fire stations are subject to the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 in the same way as other non-domestic premises. Any decision about whether any particular type of fire precaution, including fire detection and warning, is required should be taken in the light of a fire risk assessment of the premises and their use.
