Community fire safety
The vision of the Isle of Man Fire and Rescue Service is to make the Island a safer place to live, work and visit. We aim to achieve this vision by working to reduce the level of risk within the community by providing effective fire safety advice to properties which come under the remit of the Fire Precautions Act 1975 (including Flats).
The Fire Safety Department is managed by a Divisional Officer and consists of 2 dedicated teams:
- General Fire Safety Team
- the Flats Team
It is the department's role to apply and enforce the current fire safety legislation, The Fire Precautions Act 1975, to all applicable premises on the Island.
The department provides free goodwill fire safety advice to members of the public when requested and actively encourages feedback regarding our service delivery.
Unfortunately due to reducing staff numbers we can no longer offer inspections to properties which do not come under the Fire Precautions Act, such as Shops Offices and Factories. However we will continue to offer good will advice and we have also added guidance to this website for such premises.
Due to having only two officers in the general Fire Safety Team there may be a delay in replying to your request, but we will ensure that you receive a reply within 21 days.
