From this page you can find information on how to keep your premises safe from fire and the legal obligations you need to fulfil.
This information is for persons responsible for blocks of flats, Houses In Multiple Occupation (HIMO) or other living accommodation with communal areas.
Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service (NFRS) are committed to keeping our community and the businesses in our community safe, by offering guidance and support as well as enforcing fire safety legislation.
The accountability of ensuring the premises is safe lies with the assigned responsible person. The guidance below will help businesses meet their legal requirements.
Whilst the first contact should be made with private sector housing regarding blocks of flats, HIMOs or other living accommodation with communal areas, NFRS will offer advice and guidance for the premises.
