Active Fire Safety Measures
Active Fire Precaution measures are systems which activate or are required to be activated in the event of an outbreak of fire.
Active Fire Precaution measures would include fire detection and alarm systems, emergency lighting and fire fighting equipment. Fire safety management within a building must include a full appraisal of the active and passive fire safety measures within the building.
All deficiencies in the fire safety measures should be noted and a programme of remedial works to upgrade the building to an acceptable standard should be put in place.
