A PCC's responsibility for the care of a church building includes looking after the risk of fire. The PCC should:
- Undertake a risk assessment and review it regularly;
- Provide suitable fire-fighting equipment;
- Take special measures when building works are being carried out;
- Ensure that checks of the electrical and lightning protection systems are carried out regularly.
Our sponsors, Ecclesiastical Insurance Group, have produced a range of guidance notes to help prevent fires, and what to do in the event of an emergency. You can download these guidance notes by clicking on the links below:
