Fire Safety Statement
Christian Action takes fire safety very seriously and the safety of our Residents is our highest priority.
We have a robust Fire Safety Operations Procedure in place, which is regularly reviewed to ensure that we are compliant with The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
We undertake Fire Risk Assessments (FRA) to our properties every 3 years with a yearly review.
All Fire Risk Assessments are carried out by professionally qualified Fire Risk Assessors.
