Thanks to a new partnership scheme West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service (WYFRS) will provide Yorkshire Housing with fire safety advice.

The Primary Authority Scheme (PAS), allows the emergency services and the business world to come together in a partnership.

At the heart of the partnership is consistency enabling one primary fire and rescue service to work together with us to improve fire safety.

Yorkshire Housing’s property compliance manager Michael Buckley said: “We’re committed to providing all our staff and customers with safe places to work and live. Our partnership with WYFRS will give us the assurance to receive the very best fire safety advice and help from the experts.

“As we cover a number of local council and fire authority areas, we will receive consistent regulatory advice. Having a single point of contact with someone familiar with our business will reduce the risk of non-compliance.”

WYFRS fire protection inspector and business support officer Mark Nuttall said: “It’s fantastic that we have another prestigious company such as Yorkshire Housing signed on to the scheme and making a commitment to fire safety.

“We are looking forward to working together in the future.”
