Click here for details of a fire safety course for schools.
Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service is required under various Acts of Parliament to enforce fire safety and to provide fire safety education.
Our protection and prevention departments are working together to reduce the number of deliberate and accidental fires in schools.
When a school is damaged by fire, the effects are far wider reaching than the material damage to the building, trauma to staff and pupils, loss of course and exam work, the lost educational time and the effect on the local community. By taking some basic precautions in working practices, it is possible to minimise the risk of fire.
Using the links above you can download nine PDFs providing schools with a risk-based approach to eliminating the possibility of harm through fire, and a reactive approach to courses and education methods for pupils.
The information was produced by the West Midlands Arson Task Force. Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service has worked in partnership to roll out a similar programme in Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes.
Through the hard work of local authorities, governing bodies, teachers and Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service, this fire risk reduction resource can provide a safer environment for the education and welfare of our children.
