Fire Water Runoff Consultancy

Fire Water Runoff Consultancy

As part of Fire Prevention Plans, you may be required to control fire water runoff in accordance with CIRIA (736) Containment systems for the prevention of pollution.

This may involve secondary, tertiary, and other measures for industrial and commercial premises.

It is of paramount importance that a plan will work, and so we recommend seeking expert advice.

At Flood Protection Solutions, we have partnered with some of the best environmental consultants in the U.K, allowing us to offer great advice.

Fire Prevention Plans are required by the Environment Agency as a condition of an Environmental Permit.

After 4 floods in 16 years, the Water-Gate Barrier was used in November and December 2012. The relief when it prevented what would have been a 5th and 6th flood was enormous. The best part is the piece of mind that follows.
