Introducing the 4LSAB Multi-Agency Fire Safety Framework

The Hampshire Safeguarding Adults Board are pleased to announce the launch of the   4LSAB – Local Safeguarding Adult Boards – Multi-Agency Fire Safety Framework).

The Multi-Agency Fire Safety Framework has been developed to provide all frontline staff and other professionals who are responsible for delivering care and support services with support and guidance for the effective management of fire risks within the home or residential setting.

This tool will help to provide an awareness of:

  • The key risk factors for individuals who have an increased vulnerability towards fire.
  • An understanding of the impact this vulnerability to fire can have on the individual, neighbouring occupants or other residents.
  • The early interventions and control measures available to ensure such risks can be managed in the most effective way.

Please visit the Hampshire and IOW Fire and Rescue Service to watch the launch video on the framework:
