Fire Door Safety Week | 26 September - 2 October 2016

The Fire Door Safety Week 2016 will take place from the 26th September to the 2nd October.

This year's campaign commemorates the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire of London, the event which gave rise to the ‘fire door’.

The event underlines the critical role that fire doors play in fire safety within buildings and drawing attention to common-place bad practice that risks property and lives.

Support for the campaign has already been pledged from South Wales, West Midlands and London Fire and Rescue Services, as well as a significant number of companies in the door and hardware industries.

The Fire Door Safety Week is also backed by the Government’s Fire Kills campaign, the Fire Sector Federation, the Association for Specialist Fire Protection (ASFP) and Children’s Burns Trust. 

London Fire Brigade is working with the British Woodworking Federation to deliver a fire door safety conference to its fire safety teams across London on 29 September 2016.
