Fire Safety

Following the fire at Grenfell Tower Block in North Kensington, the Council would like to assure tenants that none of its flats have been installed with cladding.

Over recent years we have reviewed our fire precautions in flats following which all three storey flats have had smoke/heat detectors installed which will alert residents to any potential fire wherever it is in the block. All our other properties have smoke detectors.

On an annual basis we also complete gas safety checks to every property, which includes checking smoke alarms, and on a five year basis we check the safety of electrical installations with the objective of keeping tenants safe.

If you are a Council tenant and have any concerns about safety in your home please contact the Housing Service on tel 876578 or email housing@barrowbc.gov.uk
