You will be asked to provide your name, role, organisation and email address in case of any technical issues or if we need to contact you to clarify anything about your response. 

It is not mandatory to respond to all of the questions in the survey; you are welcome to only complete those areas that you have an interest or expertise in.

What happens after the consultation has closed?

All consultation responses will be considered following the consultation. Should any responses result in significant revisions to the Fire Standard, a further consultation may be initiated.

Considerations and Notes

Hyperlinks to places within this draft Fire Standard, or to other sections of guidance may not currently function; this will be addressed at point of publication. 

This Fire Standard reflects only the most appropriate legislation to this topic. We recognise that fire and rescue services must comply with a broader list of legislation to undertake their duties, which would be applicable to all standards. The legislation which applies to all standards can be found on the Fire Standards Board website.

Any illustrations are not currently in high-definition, to allow for email limitations; this will be addressed at point of publication.
