Fire Protection Performance Information

One of the cornerstones of the work of the Fire and Rescue Service is in the area of Fire Protection. This work is focused on assisting business to comply with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 so that the non-domestic buildings in which people work, visit and enjoy leisure time are provided with facilities that will ensure a safe means of escape in the event of a fire starting. This assistance may take the form of educational events, signposting to relevant guidance and the checking or auditing of fire protection measures.

Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service is committed to better, smarter regulation which promotes business growth and has policies, procedures and mechanisms in place to ensure we carry out our regulatory responsibilities, including firm but fair enforcement, in accordance with the principles of the Regulators’ Code 2014.  We comply with the five principles of good regulation i.e. proportionality, accountability, consistency, transparency, and targeting which are enshrined in our current Enforcement Policy. Our fire protection activities are targeted at those premises that we perceive present the greatest risk to the community and we are committed to enforcing the law so that members of the public and local employees are protected from the risk of death and injury caused by fire.
