Evacuation policy

  • Stay Put - View advice from London Fire Authority.
  • If a fire starts in your flat, get everyone out, close the door behind you and leave the building. When you are safe, call 999.
  • If a fire starts in another part of the building, stay put unless your flat is being affected by fire or smoke. There is fire protection provided in the building as well as the floors, walls and doors of each flat.
  • When you stay put, you reduce the risk of entering a smoky corridor unnecessarily and possibly being overwhelmed by smoke.
  • Staying put also means firefighters can tackle the fire safely and quickly without being delayed by residents coming down the stairs.

An up to date list of residents who need assistance in the event of a fire is kept securely on site for the fire brigade. If you feel you should be included on the list please contact your Property Manager.

Significant findings from Fire Risk Assessment

  • Risk of fire and smoke compromising the internal escape routes within the flats due to missing internal fire doors and screen panels
  • Risk of fire spread into the protected escape lobbies through flat front doors not fitted with effective self- closing door closers.

How we are managing fire risk in the buildings

  • Works to replace the self-closing door closers to individual flats started in August and are due to finish in September 2018 (subject to access to flats)
  • Work started to replace the communal fire doors in August and is due to be completed September 2018.

Building construction and cladding
