Don’t leave fire doors open – their purpose is to stop the spread of a fire. Let us know if you notice any damage or faults to fire doors or self-closer door fixings, so that we can fix them.
Make sure you know the fire safety arrangements for your block – do you know the evacuation policy? Read the fire action notices for your building, and if still unsure then please contact us.
Never use a lift to escape – you run the risk of being trapped.
If you have elderly or vulnerable residents, consider how you could safely help them in a case of emergency.
Keep all exits and communal corridors clear. Please let us know if you notice others are blocking corridors and if you’d like us to speak to them.
Keep mobility scooters out of corridors or near exits.
If you are concerned and an elderley resident or situated in a sheltered scheme resident, speak with your housing officer who will arrange a risk assessment to agree a plan or arrange a Home safety visit.
