We use fire doors to prevent fire spreading from one area to another. Your front door is a fire door if you live in a flat in a high-rise building, low-rise building, sheltered housing scheme or extra care scheme.
Fires in your home or building
If there is a fire in your home or building, follow the guidance on what you should do for the type of home and building you live in. Never try to put out the fire yourself or use a lift.
Fire alarms and smoke detectors
All our properties have a smoke detector fitted. All our high-rise buildings and sheltered housing and extra care schemes have a communal fire alarm that we test every week.
Tips on how to prevent fires in your home and building. They include when you are cooking, electrics, storing waste and other items, smoking, balconies, candles and incense.
