We take fire safety seriously and carry out fire risk assessments to check for the risk of a fire especially within blocks of flats as well as Sheltered and Extra Care schemes.
We have recently been putting carbon monoxide detectors in the homes we manage, and we already provide smoke alarms. Please take the time to check your detectors are working and let us know if your detectors are not working or you need one replacing.
Can you please ensure that your do not leave your personal belongings within the communal entrances or stairways if you live in a block of flats as these can prevent safe escape from the building in the event of a fire.
Can we please ask that you do not use any appliances such as a barbeque or chiminea to heat your home as this will create a real risk of a fire and carbon monoxide poisoning to you, your family and your neighbours.
If you are worried about heating your home, then please contact us for information on the range of support available to help you with the cost of heating your home. Please be aware that you will still have to pay a standing charge for your gas supply even if you are not using it.Back to news
