S5W-13510: Mark Ruskell (Mid Scotland and Fife)

Scottish Green Party

Date lodged: 18 December 2017

To ask the Scottish Government what proportion of schools in each local authority area isĀ fitted with smoke detectors.

Answered by: John Swinney 9 January 2018

The Scottish Government does not hold this information centrally. As fire safety is a responsibility of local authorities, this information may be available by contacting local Authorities directly and the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service.

However, I wrote to all local authorities in August seeking reassurance of fire safety across the school estate. From the detailed responses received, we are reassured that local authorities have taken all steps necessary to ensure the fire safety of their schools.
