Significant findings from Fire Risk Assessment

  1. An invasive survey identified remedial works.

How we are managing fire risk in the buildings

Additional detection and a change in evacuation strategy has been put in place until a programme to complete remedial works is completed.

Evacuation policy

Temporary change: Full evacuation

When the alarm sounds, get everyone in your flat out of the building using emergency fire exit routes and stairs.

Hampshire Fire And Rescue Service has also produced a useful leaflet about High Rise Living [adobe pdf / 2 MB].

Means of escape

The best escape route is the staircase nearest your flat. There are two routes out of your building:

  • the enclosed stairwell that leads to the ground floor, on either side of the building

Do not use the lift.
