Fire safety advice for sheltered housing
The following fire safety advice should only be followed by residents in our Sheltered Housing Accommodation.
- If there is a fire in your flat (in a Sheltered Housing Scheme) you should evacuate the building immediately
- If there is a fire in a communal area or you are in a communal area when the alarm sounds you should evacuate the building, unless you are in the immediate vicinity of your flat and then you may return to your flat if there are no visible signs of smoke.
- If you hear the fire alarm sounding in your scheme and there is no fire within your flat or Bungalow. You may ‘Stay Put’ if you wish do so, however you may also evacuate at any time if you feel unsafe.
REMEMBER: If you are unsure or feel unsafe you may evacuate at any time
