The primary remit of healthcare providers with regard to fire safety is the protection of patients, visitors and health service staff from the effects of fire. For the application of effective fire precautions in healthcare premises, healthcare organisations will need to select a combination of measures to produce a fire-safe design, taking the following points into account: 1. all statutes and guidance relevant to the scheme as a whole; 2. this manual and other associated Firecode manuals; 3. the advice and approval of local building control and fire and rescue authorities; 4. the advice of healthcare staff (estates staff, healthcare fire safety managers and advisers etc). This manual is an important component of the Firecode suite. It covers a range of general fire safety measures that apply throughout healthcare premises and should be read in conjunction with other manuals in the Firecode suite.
