We know that security and safety are high on the agenda for residents, however, fire safety is sometimes considered less of a priority. In fact, research suggests that people are six times more likely to report a heating system issue to their housing provider than a fire door one. Fire Door Safety Week (20-26 September) aims to raise the awareness of the critical role that fire doors play in saving lives and protecting property in the event of a fire.
Hexagon takes the issue of fire doors seriously, which is why, among other safety works, we have installed over 200 new fire door sets in the last year and will continue to install more throughout our properties.
We would encourage all residents to view the simple 5-step guide to checking a fire door (link below) and report any concerns or questions you have to the Property Safety Team via firstname.lastname@example.org or via 020 8778 6699.
