Fire safety guidance for high-rise homes – Scotland

Advice for residents and those responsible for fire safety.

Residents in high-rise properties are being given leaflets outlining how to prevent fires in the home and what to do if one starts in their building. The advice, produced by the Scottish Government and the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, is being delivered to high-rise homes from December and will also be available in libraries and community centres in all 15 local authorities with the properties.

Guidance is also being published for those responsible for fire safety in high-rise buildings, including councils, housing associations, owners and private landlords.

It is important that those responsible for fire safety in high-rise buildings also have the most relevant, up-to-date information. That is why a single source of guidance covering general fire safety and fire risk assessments is being published.
