Home Safety Fire Checks for Brandwood Residents

Our Brandwood Community Fire Officer Jamie Beckett from Kings Norton Blue Watch , kindly came along and answered lots of residents questions re fire safety at our meeting 19th April.
In brief

If you have smoke alarms make sure the batteries are working- if unit is flashing replace battery. If you are unable to reach( ie are very small and or elderly) then the local Fire Officers can assist you .

For more vulnerable residents, the Community Team will visit your house/flat to make sure that all is safe.
For all fire emergencies the number is 999 for all community fire checks the
number is 0121 380 7535.

The current strategy for residents in flats or multiple housing is to stay put if there is a fire in the block ( after ringing 999).
