How to reduce the risk of fires in your home, including advice for high rise tenants.

General advice

Maintaining fire safety equipment and being aware of fire risks in your home will help to reduce the risk of a fire breaking out.

Fire risk assessments

Safety in your home is an absolute priority for us. We undertake regular fire safety checks and assessments on our high rise properties, flats, maisonettes and retirement living schemes to identify fire safety improvements and keep you safe.

We are investing over £90m on fire safety improvements over the next few years to ensure we have the highest standards of fire safety protection across council homes in Kirklees.

Our initial focus is to improve fire safety measures in high rise properties, six-storey blocks of flats and retirement living schemes.
