When it comes to fire safety in the homes that we manage, our priority is to keep you safe.
We carry out fire safety checks to all our rented homes before we let them.
This includes ensuring that there are appropriate means of escape and that any fire detection equipment is maintained in safe working order.
In the blocks of flats that we manage, the Fire Action Notice in the communal area will inform you of the appropriate action to take in the event of a fire.
As well as the measures we have in place, there are steps that you should take to reduce fire risk in your home.
For more information on fire safety in your home, please visit the West Midlands Fire Service website www.wmfs.net, the Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service website www.shropshirefire.gov.uk or the government’s fire safety website www.firesafety.campaign.gov.uk
Crucial to maximising fire safety in flats with communal areas, is making sure that corridors are kept clear to allow for evacuation in the event of a fire.
If you believe that any fire detection equipment in your home is faulty, please report a repair by visiting our Report a Repair Now page.
