Fire Safety Advice from Together Housing

Posted on

In light of the fire at a high rise block in London, Together Housing would like to reassure all tenants and nearby residents of any high rise blocks that they are confident everything possible is  done to ensure they are protected and kept safe.

However, as a precaution, Together Housing are double checking all procedures over the coming weeks and will be re-issuing fire safety advice to tenants.

Together Housing has cladding on a number of its properties and, following speculation in the media, understand tenant’s concern about whether it is fire resistant.

In construction, Together Housing have taken every step possible to ensure the materials they use are fire resistant and the design safe. The details from the Grenfell Tower Fire are not yet known but Together Housing are reviewing this on a daily basis as details become available and will be keeping tenants informed through digital channels.
