Area Manager Phil Martin said:  “The Fire and Rescue Service wants to ensure that people can have fun in safety. There have been well documented tragic fires where the well-intended decoration of buildings and corridors has led to rapid fire spread when a fire has started.”

The Service advises that in considering decorations people must take account of the flammability of material used. Anything that could assist the developmental spread of fire must be avoided.

Phil continued: “Those responsible for buildings are required to complete a risk assessment that takes account of all matters related to fire spread and maintaining a means of escape. A sensible and considered approach will ensure people can escape safely if a fire does occur.”
