The importance of the fire alarm log book in schools | Education BusinessCatherine Nelms, of the Fire Industry Association, outlines why using the fire alarm log book is vital for schools across the country.

It is also critical that a regular review is undertaken of the fire risk assessment since over time a situation might change. For instance, if there are changes in how the premises are being used, or the actual building undergoes any structural modifications, then the fire risk assessment needs to be reviewed.
