Property protection (including heritage buildings) is outside of the scope of the Order and is a matter for the building owner and their insurers. The Chief Fire Officers’ Association has a proactive group engaging with stakeholders from the heritage sector to consider fire safety issues. This is well attended and we have no evidence of any particular concerns over compliance.
