If there's a fire in your block

Each block will have a policy in place, which may include a stay put policy. Details of this can be found by the entrance doors.

If there's a fire in your home:

  • call the fire service on 999
  • get all occupants to leave the property
  • do not return to gather your belongings
  • close all doors including the front door
  • leave the building as quickly as possible
  • use the safest route possible.

If there's a fire but it's not in your home:

  • it should be safe to stay in your home
  • stay alert
  • leave your home and close all doors if the heat or smoke begins to affect your home
  • wait for instructions from the fire service and follow their advice.
