Fire safety in high rise buildings

This section provides advice for owners and managing agents of tall buildings, covering best practice and legal responsibilities. Safety advice for residents can be found here.

High rise buildings are, generally speaking, those buildings with ground and more than four upper floors or with a floor of more than 18m from the ground.

Since the tragic events at Grenfell Tower in 2017, the Service has been working hard to ensure that residents of high rise buildings and our firefighters are as safe as they can be. As such, we have visited every high rise building in the Service area, conducted familiarisation visits, and met with resident groups to advise and reassure.

The Dame Judith Hackitt review into high rise safety, the Government’s response documents, and the currently on-going public enquiry are continuing to change the thought processes about tall buildings, and we are working with Government and the National Fire Chiefs Council (NFCC) to ensure that we contribute to the debate and the subsequent proposed changes.

The following links and documents are designed for those living in or responsible for high-rise buildings:
