What are we doing?
We are working with the developers to carry out further investigations of the external walls to your building. We will be dealing with any issues in the external wall systems, compartmentation and fire doors that are identified in the inspections.
We’ll be posting the latest news for Broadway Heights here, so please visit this page to stay up-to-date.
Latest update 26.11.21
The installation of the fire alarm system is almost complete. There will be a period where both the alarm and waking watch will be in place so that we can test and make sure the new system is working as it should. We will contact all customers when this alarm changeover happens so that everybody is aware before this goes ahead.
Evacuation Plan for Broadway Heights
During our investigations we have changed the evacuation plan at Broadway Heights from ‘stay put’ to ‘simultaneous evacuation’, and this is currently supported by a waking watch on site. The waking watch notifies the fire service and all customers in the event of a fire and helps to coordinate the evacuation of residents who need additional help. If you’re alerted to a fire, you should leave the building following the fire signage to your nearest safe exit – please do not use the lifts.
The safe muster point is the far corner of the car park to the rear of Broadway Heights, accessed by the station entrance roadway. Any muster point must be a safe and clear distance from the building and this location is following guidance supported by Kent Fire & Rescue Service.
What is a Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan? (PEEP)
A Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan is an individual escape plan for anyone who may not be able to quickly reach a place of safety unaided in the event of an emergency. If you feel that there is someone in your household that may need support in the event of a fire, please email email@example.com so that we can complete a PEEP with them to make sure they remain safe. For your own safety, it’s important you and your family all know what to do in the event of a fire.
Fire Risk Assessment (FRA)
A fire risk assessment is an inspection of a building and it’s use, structure and the occupants. It identifies any potential fire safety hazards and risks present and provides recommendations on how those risks can be managed to keep the people living in the building safe.
Your building’s fire risk assessment may include some actions, which we will complete by the due date stated.
