Fire Safety Seminar

A lot more fire safety work is being done by many councils and housing providers since the events at Grenfell. However, the Huffington Post recently reported that over one hundred blocks of flats have failed safety checks (while other estimates are even higher) and yet only seven have had cladding removed. Because of this, many residents still feel concerned about their safety. We must never stop campaigning until everyone lives in a safe home. But in cases where their housing provider is not yet doing enough to fix problems with buildings, residents can do a lot to reduce the risk of fire by taking direct action themselves.
Drawing on FIRAS training, and using resources such as this London Fire Brigade Safety Guide (pdf), Olli Group are sponsoring a free seminar on fire safety and prevention, for social housing tenants or other interested parties.

The seminar is to be held on 19th March at Olli Group’s offices in Canning Town. Fire safety seminar times and location details.
