Reference

What is a fire risk assessment?

Every tower block should have regular Fire Risk Assessments - they're a legal requirement. But what does it mean for you, the tenant?

Guide

The corridors of my tower block are always blocked with things like buggies and furniture – are they a fire risk?

It's important that corridors are kept clear because in case of emergency, everyone needs to be able to make a quick exit.
