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 and close the front door of your flat behind you.
  • Do not stay behind to try and put the fire out.
  • Call the Fire Service- dial 999
  • Wait outside away from the building.

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

The building is designed to contain a fire in the flat where it starts, which means it will usually be safe for you to stay in your own flat if the fire is elsewhere.

However, you must leave immediately if smoke or heat affects your flat, or if you are told to do so by the Fire Service.

  • If you are in any doubt, get out.
  • Call the Fire Service- dial 999 or 112.
  • When the operator answers, give your telephone number and ask for FIRE.
  • When the Fire Service reply, give the address where the fire is.
  • Do not end the call until the Fire Service has repeated the address correctly.
