UK Fire Sprinkler Week is scheduled for 16-22 March 2015
The campaign is to raise awareness of the benefits that fitting sprinklers can have in protecting people, property and the environment from fire.The theme of Sprinkler Week 2015 is business continuity, focusing on the benefits of sprinklers to businesses, including educational establishments such as schools and colleges.
In a time of austerity it becomes more important than ever for businesses and educational institutions to ensure their key resources are protected, enabling them to be in a position to continue operating after a fire. It has been suggested that eight out of 10 businesses may not recover after a major fire.
The objectives of the week are:
To encourage businesses to consider how fitting sprinklers can help to protect their valuable assets (people, buildings, machinery and supplies) from fire, or can mitigate the effects that a fire has upon their assets, thus helping them to achieve business continuity.
To encourage schools and other educational establishments to fit sprinklers, allowing them to potentially minimise the major impact that a fire can cause their students, staff and community.
To promote the economic, social and business benefits of having sprinklers to business owners and leaders, and to dispel some of the myths about sprinklers.
Sprinkler Week 2015 also aims to dispel some of the myths that persist about sprinklers and information dispelling some of these myths can be found here
