SIMULTANTEOUS EVACUATION

FIRE ACTION

If a fire breaks out in your apartment:

  • Leave the room where the fire is straight away and close the door.
  • Tell everyone in your home, get them to leave.
  • Close the front door of your flat behind you.
  • Do not stay behind to put the fire out.
  • Raise the alarm by using a 'break glass' call point on the way out.
  • Call the Fire Service - dial 999 or 112 
  • Wait outside away from the building.

If you see or hear of a fire in another part of the building:

  • The evacuation plan for your building requires all residents to proceed to the assembly point when the communal fire detection and alarm system sounds.
  • You must leave IMMEDIATELY if smoke or heat affects your home, or you are told to by the fire service.
  • If you are in any doubt, get out.
  • Call the Fire Service- dial 999 or 112.
  • Do not end the call until the Fire Service has repeated the address correctly.
