As a precautionary measure due to fire safety concerns within the building, the fire strategy for Admiralty Quarter changed from ‘stay put’ to ‘simultaneous evacuation’ in October 2020.
Please take some time to familiarise yourself with the updated strategy, which is outlined below and please also ensure all other people within your flat (including any visitors) are also familiar with the strategy.
Your own independent smoke alarm will alert you and other occupants if there is a fire within your flat. The alarm will not sound in any other flats.
Residents who may require additional mobility assistance in a fire event should contact FirstPort.
Action to take on discovering a fire in your flat:
Leave your flat immediately, ensuring everyone in your flat leaves with you
Close all doors behind you, especially your flat front door
Inform one of the Fire Marshals on duty
Make your way to the nearest exit and move away from the building to the Assembly Point at The Marquee Structure, Central Plaza, Gunwharf Quays Shopping Centre.
Occupants of other flats upon hearing the alarm:
Upon hearing the alarm or being instructed to evacuate, leave your flat immediately, ensuring everyone in your flat leaves with you
Leave the premises by the nearest exit and move away from the building
DO NOT use any lifts
Do not return to the building until the ‘all clear’ has been given by the Fire Service
