FIRE SAFETY STAY PUT CAMPAIGN - WEBSITE SLIDER.png

Fire Safety in blocks

Following the Grenfell Tower tragedy in June 2017 we have been working closely with the Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service (GMFRS) to reassure customers living in blocks of flats about fire safety.

As part of this we are running a fire safety campaign in our blocks of flats during February. The campaign (run in partnership with GMFRS) includes:

  • a free safe and well visit from GMFRS for every customer (see information below about safe and well visits);
  • advice leaflets delivered through every door;
  • posters prominently displayed in blocks;
  • videos advising what to do when a fire breaks out in your flat or block (view the videos below); and
  • advice on our Facebook and Twitter pages.

Fire in your flat? Get out.

Fire in your building? Stay safe.

Fire in your building? What to do. 

 

  • Safe and well visits

    As part of our fire safety campaign, the Community Safety Team for Stockport, along with Stockport firefighters, are providing free safe and well visits to customers living in blocks. If you would like to pre-book your visit, simply call freephone 0800 555 815 or visit www.manchesterfire.gov.uk

    These visits are provided by GMFRS as it is committed to reducing fires, fire injuries and deaths by ensuring that every home has working smoke alarms and householders have access to fire safety advice. The aim of the visits is to prevent fires and improve wellbeing for householders.

    What does a safe and well visit involve?

    During the visits GMFRS ask about the health and lifestyle of the people that live in the home. This is because some things, such as smoking, drinking alcohol or living with a physical or mental health problem, need to be factored into our fire safety assessments. This helps GMFRS to provide the right fire safety advice for the household. If GMFRS find out that somebody in the home needs support to improve their wellbeing, it can provide advice or information or link people into other organisations that can help.

If you have any concerns about fire safety in your block, please speak to the Neighbourhoods Team on 0161 217 6016.

If you don’t live in one of our blocks, don’t worry, you can still arrange a free safe and well visit by calling Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue on freephone 0800 555 815 or visit www.manchesterfire.gov.uk
