Fire Safety Advice following London major incident

In light of the devastating events in London, Mosscare Housing wants to provide reassurance that we take the health and safety of our customers, visitors and staff very seriously.

We invest heavily in ensuring we comply with all fire safety legislation, including where appropriate, fire doors, smoke alarms, fire alarm systems and door closers.

Fire precautions within our properties are kept up to date with specialist surveyors carrying out independent fire risk inspections.

Mosscare does not have any multi-storey blocks above 4 floors and none of our properties have been fitted with curtain wall cladding, currently being related in the news to the fire at Grenfell Tower in London.

However, we want to assure customers that we are not complacent with our responsibility in this area and take great care to ensure that the fire precautions built into our properties are maintained. We work closely with Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue.

The contact details for any North West based Fire & Rescue Service can be found at http://www.cfoa.org.uk/frs.

If you require a Home Safety Check or for further free home safety advice please call Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue on Freephone 0800 555 815 or visit www.manchesterfire.gov.
