Fire Warden Training

So I've just completed my Fire Warden Training and I must say I enjoyed it. Few points I've picked up

Fire regulations do not apply to privately owned personal residence.
BUT privately rented homes need a mains powered smoke/heat detector in the landing of each floor.
A whole book of regulations exist for public buildings (see regulatory Reform Fire Safety order 2005).
Public building should have a Fire Risk Assessment annually AND/OR when any changes to building layout AND/OR use.
I'll be purchasing a fire blanket for my home kitchen and  powder extinguisher for the rest of the apartment.

Got to practically test out fire extinguishers today on real flames and the hands on experience was worth it.
