Minimising the dangers
According to the government, fire services attended over 40,000 fire-related incidents at homes or primary dwellings over the last 12 months, highlighting the ongoing and obvious danger fires in home spaces - including the roof - present to lives and property. Current building regulations stipulate that any newly constructed home needs to be specified with fire protection measures in place to delay the spread of fire and allow crucial time to escape.
