4.  Call the Fire Service – dial 999.

5.  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.

1.  If you are in any doubt, get out.

2.  Call the Fire Service – dial 999.

3.  When the operator answers, give your telephone number and ask for

FIRE.
