Following the recent intrusive building surveys, we’re in discussions with the buildings developers to agree on any works that may be required. Once we’ve got this information we’ll share it with you all by letter and update this page.
Evacuation Plan for Broadway Heights
The evacuation plan at Broadway Heights remains a ‘simultaneous evacuation’ policy, which is supported by a fire alarm system fitted in flats and communal areas. If you hear the fire alarm, or see a fire, you should leave the building immediately, 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 Escape Plan?
A Personal Escape Plan is what you would follow in event of a fire in your building. For your own safety, it’s important you and your family all know what to do in the event of a fire. If there is anyone in your household who in the event of an emergency, may not be able to quickly reach a place of safety unaided, or may need additional support in the event of a fire, please email email@example.com so that we can work with them to make sure they remain safe.
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.
