East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service is urging building owners and managers to try out a new Blind Spot Calculator, as part of efforts to keep communities safe.
It’s been created by the Fire Protection Association, supported by National Fire Chiefs Council, as part of their Know Your Building Campaign.
It helps building owners and managers to understand where their blind spots are when it comes to property protection.
Dan Channon, Group Manager for Business Safety said:
“This is a great starting place for anyone whose job it is to meet fire regulations, whether in commercial properties, factories or the communal areas of flats.”
The calculator evaluates four key areas:
- Building knowledge
- Fire protection systems
- Training and competency
- Organisational resilience
The calculator takes just 5-10 minutes to complete and, based on their results, the Fire Protection Association will provide building owners and managers with personalised scores and resources to further build their knowledge.
