Fire Safety in Community Dwelling Houses

In 2017 the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government published the Code of Practice for Fire Safety in New and Existing Community Dwelling Houses, to provide guidance for designers, specifiers, property managers and staff working on/in community dwelling houses on fire safety factors in units with up to six residents, with or without resident carers.

EOBA assisted in developing the code in conjunction with the Health Service Executive (HSE), Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA), Chief Fire Officers Association (CFOA), non-government organisations (NGO’s) specialising in community care, to provide guidance for fire safety in community dwelling houses.
