What are false fire alarms and how can I help to reduce them?

False alarms or unwanted fire signals occur when the fire alarm is activated when there is no fire. False alarms can be a significant inconvenience to all residents and staff and cause unnecessary pressure and resources for the local fire authority. You can help to reduce false alarms by following a few simple rules:
1. Close you bathroom door when taking a shower, steam can cause an activation.
2. Do not smoke in your flat, room or studio.
3. Do not cover a fire alarm detector and never tamper with fire safety equipment..
4. Keep kitchen fire doors closed, open a kitchen window or use extract fan to clear room of smoke when cooking.
5. Avoid using products such as deodorant and hair spray near smoke alarms.

What is a Fire Risk Assessment (FRA)?

A Fire Risk Assessment (FRA) is an inspection of fire safety in your buildings . The purpose of the assessment is to:
1. Assess the risk of a fire occurring,
2. Assess the likelihood of the occupants being able to respond to a fire,
3. Assess the consequences of a fire occurring in the building,
4. Take preventative action.

Who carries out the Fire Risk Assessment?

PMG employ experienced, qualified, independent specialist assessors from PEMCO LLP to carry out the assessments. In addition, PMG consult with local fire authorities to ensure PMG are doing everything to keep you safe.

How often are Fire Risk Assessments carried out?

A Fire Risk Assessment is carried out annually and preventative actions reviewed monthly. On occasion it may not be possible for us to meet the desired target dates for actions set out in the assessment due to factors outside of PMG control. In such circumstances (and where applicable) PMG will identify and introduce additional or temporary measures to ensure fire safety at all times.

Who can I speak to if I am concerned about fire safety?

In the first instance speak with the Responsible Person (RP) for your building. Information on how to contact your RP can be found in your welcome handbook and on notices in reception. If unsure speak to a member of staff who will be happy to assist you.

How can I prepare myself in case of fire?

Be aware of the fire evacuation strategy and procedure. You will find information on your assembly point and what to do in the event of fire displayed on Fire Action Notices dotted around the building and in your welcome handbook. Every six months PMG will hold a fire drill, PMG ask for your cooperation as this will help guide you on the evacuation procedure. Failure to evacuate the building upon hearing the fire alarm puts you and others at risk. If in doubt please speak to the Responsible Person for your building.

How do I reduce the risk of fire in the kitchen?

1. Never leave cooking food unattended.
2. Check the cooker and hob are turned off when cooking is finished.
3. Never cook under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Never wedge open a door marked with a blue and white (circular) sign that reads "Fire Door Keep Shut" and never disconnect the self closing device. If you see a damaged fire door please report this to the Responsible Person without delay.

If I need assistance to evacuate in the event of a fire, what should I do?
