The event run by the Strathclyde Fire and rescue service – a valuable opportunity for SFR and other agencies to learn from the Rosepark tragedy.
The Fatal Accident Inquiry report into the Rosepark ran to more than 1,000 pages. We have compressed this determination into a concise examination of the facts which – in conjunction with today’s seminar and a review of the sheriff’s determination – will assist SFR, other fire authorities and stakeholders to prepare for future pre-planning, fire safety enforcement and operational deployments.
