London Fire Brigade Calls For Sprinklers to be Mandatory in Schools

The London Fire Brigade has called for SprinklersLFB to be mandatory in all schools and colleges.

Figures revealed that no sprinklers were fitted to any school or college that suffered fire in London during 2019.

Since January, there were 57 reported fires across London within schools and colleges that were attended by firefighters. None of which had any sprinklers.

The London Fire Brigade data covers incidents at nurseries, primary and secondary schools, colleges and universities.

Since 2014, there have been 565 school fires attended by the London Fire Brigade. Only 2.3% of the buildings fitted with a Sprinkler System, which accounts to 13 premises.

Charlie Pugsley, deputy assistant commissioner for fire safety stated;

“Sprinklers save lives and property. Millions of pounds are wasted every year repairing fire damage in London’s schools when sprinklers could have prevented the spread of fire”
