Fire safety in your home

We carry out regular rigorous fire safety checks of all blocks and communal areas. We also test fire alarms as part of this regular schedule of works.

Within your home, it is your responsibility to avoid fire risk.

Remember, never try to tackle a fire yourself – if a fire starts in your home, call 999.

Fire safety tips

We’ve pulled together some top tips to help you stay safe in your home, and avoid a household fire:

Buying and fitting smoke alarms could help you to save your home and the lives of your family.

A smoke alarm (also known as a smoke detector) is a device that detects fire in its early stages and gives a loud audible warning.

Remember to regularly test your smoke alarm! Press to test. Monthly is best.
