At this time the evacuation strategy for the building remains as Stay Put, which means that in the event of a fire, unless the fire is within your home, you should not attempt to leave. However this will be monitored/reviewed and where changes to the evacuation strategy become necessary, all residents will be informed and provided additional information on the action to take in the event of an evacuation.
We've listed some of the things that can be a fire hazard on balconies, and these include:
Smoking materials - of any description including the smoking of cigarettes
Screening or matting of any description
Rubbish of materials for recycling
Mirrors and glass ornaments that may focus the sun's rays
Fuel of flammable liquids
Storage - for example small sheds
If you have any of these items on your balcony or anything else that could cause a fire, please would you make sure that these are removed as soon as possible. If you need any assistance with removing anything, please let us know - we would be happy to advise.
Keep corridors and exits clear - Obstructions can block your and other's escape routes, fuel the fire, and prevent the fire service getting in to put out the fire.
Don't leave items like bikes, buggies or mobility scooters in communal corridors
