Fire Safety

Posted on: 14 June

We want to reassure tenants that Fire Risk Assessments of communal areas are carried out on a regular basis. We go above and beyond legal requirements and take fire safety very seriously. Our cleaning team carry out checks fortnightly, United Communities staff check monthly and a full test of all fire safety warning systems is carried out twice a year. The first full inspection of this year has just been completed.

We would also like to remind tenants that fire safety within your home is your responsibility, you should:

 – Check your fire alarm regularly
 – Replace batteries when they run out (the alarm will beep regularly to indicate when batteries need replacing)
 – Nothing should be stored in communal hallways and all fire routes kept clear at all times – please report an potential hazards
