Fire Safety in Flats

This Advice Note gives general guidance about fire safety in blocks of flats. Specific advice for individual blocks will differ, so you should read this in conjunction with the guidance that’s in place for your own building. That could be a leaflet or a fire safety notice posted in the communal areas.

The information in this advice note is important — taking a little time to read it now may save your life!
