Fire Safety Information Reminder for Sheffield Council Tenants

15 Jun

Dear tenant or resident,

Following the recent fire in at Grenfell tower block in London, we wanted to reassure you about how seriously we take fire safety and what you can do to keep you and your home safe.

Safety is our main consideration in the design, build and updating of tower blocks. Since the 1990s, significant investment has taken place to all blocks in Sheffield, and millions of pounds have been spent on measures that minimise fire risk.

Regular Fire Risk assessments take place and each tower block is visited daily to check it is safe. We tackle any issues with tenants, particularly around the removal of waste.

We still don’t know the reasons why the fire spread so quickly in London. We would like to reassure you that once we receive the details, if we need to change any arrangements to keep tenants safe, then we will.

We also wanted to remind you about the fire safety advice available, including some steps you can take to minimise fire risk and prevent injury or accident. Please take the time to read our Fire Safety leaflets attached below.

You will also find this information in your tenancy sign up pack.

If you have any further questions or concerns please get in touch with your neighbourhood officer or call us on : 0114 2734567

Best wishes,

Janet Sharpe, Director of Housing and Neighbourhood Service

Jayne Dunn, Cabinet member for Neighbourhoods and Community Safety
