Following the tragic incident last week at Grenfell Tower in London our sincere thoughts are with the family and friends of those affected. We would like to reassure our customers that Arcon Housing Association takes fire safety very seriously and have robust measures in place to ensure the safety of residents living in all of our properties.
We assess all of our properties which have communal areas every two years to ensure that they are compliant with fire safety regulations. Our Estate Service Officers and Caretaker also carry out regular scheme inspections to ensure that standards are maintained.
We would like to take this opportunity to remind customers that it is their responsibility to ensure no items are left unattended in communal areas as these could potentially obstruct your exit in the case of a fire. Can you also please ensure that you test your fire alarm and ensure that fire doors are kept closed at all times?
If you have any concerns about fire safety please email our Customer Service Team on firstname.lastname@example.org
Aside from taking the preventative measures highlighted above, we are currently looking into adopting additional measures including the provision of sprinkler systems in dwellings at our only Tower Block at Arundel Court Blackley.
We want to ensure all our residents feel safe and secure in their homes and we will be closely monitoring what actions are being proposed by the Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue services over the coming days and weeks.
