This is good advice and it is even becoming law for all private landlords, but a smoke alarm in a house or a fire alarm in a business is only one piece of the puzzle and for maximum safety from fire you need to have the whole puzzle. For businesses there is legislation to guide, but no such thing for home so we have prepared a domestic fire risk assessment template to get you thinking about what more you can do at home but please note it is not sufficient for business (or private landlords) as you need to conduct a bespoke assessment for your premises and business activities for the safety of your people and in order to meet regulations.
