Update on fire safety in

tower blocks

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

assembly point.

It's important that all fire exit routes are kept clear at all

times. Please do not leave any items in the communal areas.
