Fire Door Safety Week is the brainchild of the BWF Fire Door Alliance, and is all about raising awareness of this critical element of fire safety in every commercial, public and multiple occupancy building.
The award winning campaign aims to raise awareness of the critical role that fire doors play in protecting property and saving lives and draw attention to a legacy of neglect that has undermined fire door performance.
If you’re a building owner, installer, facility manager, landlord or resident -YOU can help us promote Fire Door Safety. We are planning to hold the 2019 Fire Door Safety Week in September – Watch this space for further info….

The Fire Door Safety Week website offers tailored advice to those who are responsible for fire safety. This advice covers a range of sectors including housing, schools and hospitals.
There are also free resources in an online toolkit to help spread the word about fire door safety. These include technical checklists to help with fire door inspections, videos and posters that can be used in any private, public or multiple occupancy building to educate people on basic fire door rules.
There are also many other ways to get involved, including promoting the message of Fire Door Safety Week on websites and social media, running events, carrying out full onsite inspections and sending any images of dodgy fire doors to firstname.lastname@example.org
