Scottish government launched the new guidance, which is a recommendation from its review of the country’s fire safety regime, to cover fire risks in sheltered & supported housing.
24Housing reported on the launch, which aims to ‘reduce the risk from fire in specialised housing’ including sheltered and supported accommodation, with the Scottish government pointing out that older people ‘and people with physical, sensory or mental health issues are at increased risk of injury or death from fires’.
