The provision of sprinkler systems to protect High Life risk Buildings.

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority (London Fire Brigade) should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority (London Fire Brigade),

At last, sprinkler systems are being given a high profile especially that they should be retrospectively be installed in domesticated High Rise buildings, and rightly so. My concern is what about those other High Life Risk premises such as: Nursing Homes, Hospitals and HMOs.
I believe in Wales and Scotland it is mandatory to have sprinklers installed in Nursing Homes. Could you please provide me the information, with how many of the aforementioned premises are fitted with sprinklers?

Yours faithfully,

Mr. Michael George

London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority (London Fire Brigade)

Dear Michael,

Thank you for your request, dated 13 September requesting information on sprinkler installation in nursing homes, hospitals and HMO's.

In response, I can confirm we do not hold records for all of the buildings in London that have sprinklers installed.

We do hold some information about when sprinklers have activated in a fire, but this information would only have the location of the incident and nothing about the owners of the building or when the sprinklers were installed.

You may be aware that the National Fire Chiefs Council recently published a report about the effectiveness of sprinklers which used national fire data. I know that you can download a copy of that report at the following link: http://ecotectfire.com/wp-content/upload....

I’m sorry I could not be of more help on this occasion, however I hope you find the information that has been provided of use.

If you have any further questions please let me know.

Your request has been dealt with under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA). If you are dissatisfied by this response you can request an internal review by writing to the Head of Information Management and Performance at the address below (or email [email address]).

Further information about your information rights (including how to raise a concern or make a complaint) is available from the Information Commissioner’s Office on their website at www.ico.org.uk or by writing to them at Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF.
