50% of fire deaths are people receiving care

This sad statistic was published during care is week 2015 which showed out of 30 people who died in fires in London 13 were receiving care at home or were in residential care this is an increase on the 11% from the previous year.  What makes the statistics even worse is that fire sprinklers could have saved most of these lives. 

Legislation in Scotland and Wales both require residential care homes to be fitted with automatic fire sprinkler systems and Wales will soon be going further and requiring all new domestic properties to also be fitted with sprinklers, is it only England where we cannot see the benefit or do not care about the consequences
