Fire damage

Our concern is for your safety. We want to remind you how important it is to keep communal areas free of rubbish and any electrical/inflammable materials.

Fire Risk

Often we do not realise that we are causing a fire hazard. These examples can increase the risk of fire:

  • Leaving a push bike in the corridor of a block of flats
  • Storing a pram in the stairwell
  • Putting your rubbish in the communal hallway overnight before collection
  • Charging mobility scooters in communal areas.

It is equally dangerous to store rubbish or other inflammable materials outside against the walls of your home or next to any garden or boundary fencing.

All these hazards are easy to avoid:

By keeping communal areas and stairwells clear and disposing of rubbish properly, you are helping to keep you, your family and neighbours safe.
