The guideline contains provisions for preventive fire protection for schools.

9. Brief Statement of Grounds
The preventive fire protection requirements in schools in North Rhine-Westphalia are at the discretion of the building inspectorate authorities. In order to improve fire protection, in particular for schools with learning clusters and/or open learning landscapes, and to ensure uniform implementation, this administrative regulation is enacted. The notified regulation contains provisions for preventive fire protection for schools and thus serves to prevent the outbreak and spread of fire and enables animal rescue and effective fire-fighting.
