Fire safety in flats

We want to ensure that you are as safe as you possibly can be from the dangers of smoke and fire.

It is important that you know what to do if there is a fire in your block and how you can help keep yourself, your family and your neighbours safe.

We've now combined the advice and guidance into one document so please take some time to read our fire safety booklet which gives useful information about how to prevent fires and what to do in the event of a fire occurring.

You can download fire risk assessments for our high-rise flats.

You can also download fire risk assessments for our low-rise flats.

If you live in a flat and have not yet had a fire safety check, please call 0121 368 1166.
