Fire safety and fire alarms in blocks of flats

Woodthorpe and Winchester Court

Fire safety - How you can help

Fire safety is everyone’s responsibility, and you can help keep your block safe by:          

  • Keeping corridors clear 
  • Not propping fire doors open       

  • Taking care when cooking       

  • Never leaving unattended candles burning       

  • Making sure cigarettes are properly extinguished       

  • Not putting flammable materials in communal store cupboards       

  • Not keeping bottled gas canisters in your home       

  • Taking responsibility for rubbish and making sure it’s disposed of appropriately       

  • Making sure mobility scooters, bicycles or other items are not left in corridors or somewhere  that might hinder your exit from your flat       

  • Knowing your escape routes in case you are asked to leave your flat if told do so in an emergency – and making sure everyone who lives in your home knows them too.
