The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 covers general fire safety for ALL premises (excluding personal homes) in England and Wales. Whilst the Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the primary regulator for the Care Sector, local Fire and Rescue Service safety officers also have enforcement authority that can prohibit the use of a care home premise.
Home office statistics for the period September 2012 to September 2018 showed an annual average of 439 care home fire incidences attended by Fire & Rescue services.
