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.
