You can arrange a free home fire safety visit from fire officers.

Fire risk assessments

We complete risk assessments to make sure we keep our residents and visitors safe, and to comply with current legislation.

These assessments include a general assessment of the main hazards and details of the control measures put in place to minimise risk in the event of a fire.

After the major fire at Grenfell Tower, we sent out a letter to tower block residents (pdf) to reassure them about the safety measures we take. 

Essex fire and rescue have also provided specific safety information about high-rise accommodation
