Update on fire safety in
Following the awful fire at Grenfell Tower in London on
Wednesday 14 June we have been reviewing our fire safety
processes in our four high rise buildings in Scunthorpe.
Within hours of the incident, Humberside Fire and Rescue
officers visited Trent View House, Crosby House, Sutton
House and Princess House to conduct inspections and offer
advice and reassurance to residents.
We quickly established that the cladding on our buildings is
different to that on Grenfell Tower, however, additional tests
were taken as a precautionary measure. The results have
confirmed the cladding is not combustible.
We have also decided to install additional sprinkler
systems in all four blocks. This work will take place in
the next six months.
What to do in a fire
• Raise the alarm immediately. All high rise buildings have
alarms to break in the event of a fire.
• It is your responsibility to leave the building by the
safest route, ensuring all doors are closed behind you.
• Do not attempt to use lifts when evacuating the building.
• When you have evacuated the building, wait at your fire
It's important that all fire exit routes are kept clear at all
times. Please do not leave any items in the communal areas.
