Home Fire Safety: Risk Referral Matrix

Designed by the London Fire Brigade, this extremely useful matrix is intended for everyone involved in the care and protection of vulnerable people. It is a guide to reducing the risk of death or injury from fire through consistent and appropriate risk control measures. It identifies fire risk factors and designates a risk level accordingly. The third column lists control measures to be taken by fire crews to mitigate immediate risk and the last column lists actions for service providers to consider in order to mitigate medium and long term risk.
