Fire Safety

Fire safety is an important aspect of our everyday life.

East Village has a comprehensive suite of fire safety measures and procedures which are continually reviewed.

Each home is equipped with a standalone smoke detection system, alarm system and automatic activated sprinklers in areas where they are required. There is also a 24/7 on-site security team trained to respond in the event of a fire.

On move-in we recommend you familiarise yourself with your nearest fire exit and dedicate some time to reading our fire safety guide so you know what to do in the event of a fire in your home, or the building.

Please familiarise yourself with our Fire Safety Guide below.

Water Leaks and Waste Blockages

Water Supply Isolators

In the event of water leaks, or the need to isolate some or all of the water circulation for maintenance purposes, there are various isolation valves located within the utility cupboard and at each outlet.

In the Event of Flooding

The water meter and main stop valve are in the service cupboard in your home. The main stop valve will turn off all water to your apartment.

There are also local isolation valves (blue for cold water, red for hot):

  • For sinks, behind the access panel below the sink
  • For the bath, behind the side panel
  • For the washer dry, at the back of the appliance.
  • You will need to move it out to reach the isolation valve.

Contact your Resident Host in the event of flooding.
