Fire cover public consultation is now open: visit our consultation page for more information about the proposed changesĀ and you can have your say by filling in our consultation survey.

Reduced mobility

A person with a physical impairment or limited mobility is not necessarily at greater risk of fire. However, if a fire should occur, they may be slow or unable to vacate the property in a safe and timely manner.

Reduced manual dexterity may increase the likelihood of a fire, particularly from smoking or other household activities.

For individuals who are bed dependent or bariatric, in the event of a fire, escape will not be an option. The biggest risk to these individuals is from smoking.
