Do you have fire safety concerns for a business? You can now report this via our online form!

27/04/2020

​Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service has now introduced a new online form when reporting a fire safety concerns at a commercial premises.  

Following works on our website, the new changes allows partner agencies and the public to report any fire safety concerns via our online form or by contacting us via telephone or email.  

The referral form can be used for a number of reports for example; a hotel that has blocked a fire exit could be reported through our online reporting system. The form allows the Service to receive the specific information so that the appropriate measures can be put in place. This creates a work stream for our Fire Protection team to carry out essential inspections.

Once a referral has been submitted our Fire Protection Team will be alerted and begin an investigation into the request. The online form also allows the team to continue high levels of communication throughout the investigation. 

Area Manager Damien West said: "Our Vision at Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service is to create safer communities but we know that the only way we can do this is with the help of local people and partner agencies.  Our new online reporting portal makes it quick and easy for anyone to report fire safety concerns when they see them. All reports will be followed up by our expert team who will then, where issues are highlighted, work with the business owner to make things safe.     

"This new system builds on the previous telephone reporting that we relied upon. We know that it is important that people can report their concerns quickly and efficiently, so I am really pleased to see this resource now available.  Whether it is blocked fire exits, unsafe practices or concerns from members of staff, we would like to hear about these issues to ensure we can make Nottinghamshire safer.”
