Fire Safety Within Our Properties
At Accent, we take the safety of our residents very seriously.
Our aim is to provide safe homes and support our customers in leading safe lives within them. It is always important to know what to do in the event of fire, particularly if you live somewhere with a communal area, such as in a block of flats, or an Independent Living or Extra Care Scheme. This page contains a short video that we have produced to help you plan ahead in case you discover a fire in your home or block. In addition to this we have also compiled fire safety advice for each of our schemes, to find your scheme first select your region from the list below.
Further advice on how to avoid a fire in your homes can be found the Government's Fire Kills website.
Safe and Well visits by your local fire and rescue service
Most fire and rescue services offer a ‘Safe and Well visit’ which in some areas is known as a ‘Home Fire Risk Assessment’ or ‘Home Fire Safety Check’. This is an inspection of your home to identify any potential fire risks in your home, help you reduce or prevent these risks, and ensure you have working smoke alarms and an escape plan in the event of a fire. You can book these by contacting your local fire and rescue service.
