Care home ignoring fire safety advice

Guest anonym

Recommended Posts

I work as a support worker for a care home in Cheshire. Earlier this year we had a visit from the fire team telling us we had to make several changes to the care home including a fire escape. The company is refusing to install this due to money costs. I am worried as it is putting the residents safety in danger. I do not want to be revealed as the whistle blower but the safety is so bad, the electric is always tripping we have electric heaters on constant, we went 2 weeks without no fire alarms. its not safe at all. What should I do?

The Enforcing Authority for the The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 which control fire safety in a care home is the Fire and Rescue Service and you could contact them anomalously.
