Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service is providing advice and reassurance to people who are concerned about fire safety following this morning’s fire at Grenfell Tower in London.
Area Manager Alex Johnson who is responsible for community safety in Derbyshire issued a length statement in which he said:
The department said that blocks of flats will have their own fire plan and advised occupants that they should make themselves aware of the specific advice that relates to the building in which they live. Their advice is that if there is a fire inside your flat you should alert all the people in your flat that you can and leave, closing doors behind you.
Councillor Fareed Hussain, Cabinet Member for Urban Renewal, said:
Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service will have fire safety experts and firefighters on hand tomorrow morning at Rivermead House between 11:30 – 12:30 hours to answer questions and provide reassurance to residents.
