Our Fire Evacuation policies explained

Stay Put Procedure

If there is ever a fire at your scheme, the evacuation process (set by the local fire service), is what’s known as:

A DELAYED EVACUATION (OR STAY PUT) PROCEDURE

A delayed evacuation is used in buildings where a fire can be safely contained within a flat. If evacuation is required, those residents in the immediate area of the fire can evacuate first.

If the alarm sounds and you are in your flat, close all the windows and doors and stay put. Your home is designed to resist fire for 60 minutes. If people can stay safe by staying in their flats, the fire and rescue service can focus on extinguishing a fire without a causing panic. Only leave your flat if it is affected by fire or smoke or when you are advised to do so by the fire and rescue service.

But, if the fire is in your own flat or you are in a communal area when the alarm sounds LEAVE immediately. Close the doors behind you, raise the alarm and call 999.

Follow the green exit signs. Never use the lifts or stop to collect belongings. Once you get outside, stay a safe distance away from the building and don’t go back inside until you are told it is safe to do so.

For more information on fire safety please contact your customer partner on 0345 678 0555.

Full Evacuation Procedure

If there is ever a fire at your scheme, the evacuation process (set by the local fire service), is what’s known as:

SINGLE STAGE EVACUATION

This means you should leave your home and follow the green exit signs AS SOON AS THE FIRE ALARM SOUNDS, or if there is a fire in your own flat.

Do not stop to collect any of your belongings, just leave as safely and as quickly as possible.

Follow the green exit signs in the building. Never use the lifts. Once you get outside, stay a safe distance away from the building and don’t go back inside until you are told it is safe to do so.

We have certain legal obligations when it comes to fire safety, and protecting our homes and our residents.

These include:

  • Carrying out fire risk assessments on your home.
  • Carrying out fire risk assessments in communal areas to make sure escape routes are kept clear.
  • Making sure your front door meets with current fire safety standards.
  • Fitting special heat and smoke detectors. (If the detectors are linked to a fire panel, they will be checked by our contractors every year).
  • Weekly tests of fire alarms in buildings that have a fire panel.
  • Checking fire safety signage displayed around your building is up to date.

For more information on fire safety, please contact your Customer Partner on 0345 678 0555.
