When you arrive at your apartment, it is vital that you familiarise yourself with the procedure in case of a fire. Information on what to do can be found both on the back of the front door and around the building. Please make sure that you are aware of all fire exits and check that they are clear of all obstructions. All of our properties are fitted with smoke alarms. It is essential that these are kept in working order. Please do not remove the batteries or obstruct the smoke alarm in any way. If it does not appear to function correctly, please let us know and we will come to test it straight away. In all apartments you will find both fire blankets and extinguishers. As with the smoke detectors, these should not be removed.
Good housekeeping and sensible fire precautions will reduce the possibility of a fire occurring. Poor housekeeping, carelessness and neglect will not only make the outbreak of a fire more likely, but also allow it to spread more rapidly.
