Fire safety - escape plans

Each month we will be producing short articles about different aspects of fire safety. This month's topic is the importance of having an escape plan. 

It’s really important that everyone in your homes knows what to do and where to go if a fire breaks out.

If you haven’t already, familiarise yourself with the fire safety instructions for your building if you live in a Network Homes flat. You can find this in the communal area by the main entrance. Information is clearly displayed on the wall. If it is not there, please let us know.

No matter what type of property you live in, you should always plan and practice your route to safety. Be sure to keep the route and exits clear. Keys should be kept where everyone in the household can find them.

If you have questions or would like some help creating a safety plan, please give the Network Homes Fire Safety team a call on 0300 373 3000.
