Fire strategies - guidance and framework for their formulation

Status : Current   Published : August 2007



Notwithstanding the specific requirements of fire safety legislation, it is increasingly recognized that there is a need to ensure that proper and effective precautions have been taken to ensure that the potential threat of fire is, as far as possible, minimized and that any fire incident is properly, and promptly, dealt with.

PAS 911 Fire strategies – guidance and framework for their formulation is a brand new publicly available specification (PAS) that can provide a degree of uniformity in the preparation of fire strategies.   PAS 911 Fire strategies provides a recommended process that will encompass many of the key considerations and will lead to a document that is consistent in format and has the necessary level of detail to enable subsequent designs for fire systems and for the setting up of procedures for management of fire safety to be prepared in a complementary manner.

The recommended process given in PAS 911 Fire strategies includes:

  1. Determination of the design basis; A prescriptive or performance based approach?
  2. Seven input themes with possible considerations. These themes are:
    - Management and system audit;
    - Mandatory framework;
    - Objectives setting;
    - Risk and hazard assessment;
    - Building characteristics;
    - Occupant characteristics;
    - Practical issues.
  3. Strategy formulation.
  4. Six output sub-strategies with key headings. The sub-strategies are:
    - Fire policy statement;
    - Fire safety (management) strategy;
    - Evacuation strategy;
    - Fire and smoke control strategy;
    - Fire fighting strategy;
    - Fire protection strategy.
  5. Finalising the fire strategy.
