Guidelines for fire prevention, preparedness and response in informal settlements, residential and non-residential buildings

Source(s):  Save the Children International (SCI)

This guideline was developed with an aim to promote best practices of prevention, preparedness and response that will reduce fire-related hazards among the residents of informal settlements, residential and non-residential buildings in Lebanon, and promote the development of long-term, harmonized cross-sectoral strategies of fire hazard reduction that will bring sustainable solutions and incorporate disaster resilience and mitigation into actions and decisions.

Lebanon is hosting at least one million Syrian refugees officially registered with the UN, many of them living in informal tented settlements and residential and non-residential buildings scattered around the country. Unfortunately, tented settlements and substandard buildings, due to their informality and spontaneity as they are built in an ad hoc manner, are at high risk of fire.
