The London Fire Brigade’s ‘Know The Plan’ campaign ensures that both tenants and landlords are aware of the best practices for fire safety. The campaign answers a wide range of questions that occupants of high-rise buildings may have if a fire were ever to break out in their building.

The campaign literature and website offers advice about how to stay safe if there is a fire in a high-rise building. For example, tenants are informed of their own responsibilities in the event of a fire and what responsibilities belong to their landlords. They are also offered advice about the use of fire doors, how to evacuate and when to call 999. Landlords are provided with information about fire safety laws, fire risk assessments and evacuation plans.

As important as it is to know about fire safety to protect yourself at home, it is also crucial to be informed about fire safety protocols in the workplace. Similar rules apply in high-rise offices and flats, so getting the proper training can go a long way to ensuring safety whether a fire breaks out at home or in the office.
