Fire Safety In Your Home

Fire safety is an important aspect of our everyday life.

Your home and the building as a whole meets or exceeds all current fire regulations. There is an automatic sprinkler system in each home and in the communal areas to extinguish fires. There are also fire alarms and a detailed evacuation procedure.

For more information on what to do if there is a fire, please refer to your Fire Safety Guide:

Smoke Detectors

  • The smoke detectors fitted inside your home are mains powered with a battery back-up to ensure continued use in the event of a power failure.
  • You should check this on a frequent basis and ensure that the backup batteries are changed regularly.
  • Residents are shown how to test smoke detectors on move-in; if you would like a refresher on this please contact the Relationship Management team

Fire Safety In Building Common Areas

If you witness a fire in a common area, you should evacuate the building immediately via the nearest available fire exit. Exit by the stairs and do not use the lifts.
