Fire Action Advice for Multi-Storey Flats

 

May we take this opportunity to remind you of the actions to take in the event of a Fire.

 

CHECK YOUR SMOKE ALARMS REGULARLY, REPORT ANY FAULTS IMMEDIATELY TO GLASGOW WEST REPAIRS TEAM ON TELEPHONE NUMBER 0141 331 6650.

 

• We have a “STAY PUT” policy agreed with the Fire Service. This means that unless the fire is in your flat you should stay in the flat. If there is a need to evacuate the Fire Service will supervise this.

 

• If you discover a fire raise the alarm immediately by telephoning 999 and ask for the Fire Service. Then notify GWHA Staff at the Concierge Office.

 

• If the fire is in your flat, then get out immediately taking all other occupants with you, then telephone 999.

 

• Close all doors and windows on the way out if safe to do so.

 

• Do not use lifts.

 

• If a smoke alarm goes off and there is not a fire in your flat, don’t open any doors that feel warm, get everybody in one room and close the door. Telephone 999.

 

• If possible seal the bottom of the door with wet towels, bedding etc.

 

• If you are near the window open it to get air and to let emergency services see you.

 

Things to check at night before you go to bed

 

• Close all internal doors to stop a fire from spreading.

 

• Switch off electrical heaters, blankets, TVs etc. and other items that do not need to run all night.

 

• Put out cigarettes and any candles safely.

 

• Make sure exits are clear.

 

• Keep door and window keys where everybody can find them
