At stage 1 we attend the site with full fire protective clothing and footwear (PPE) and receive a full handover from the officer in charge, carrying out a full detailed risk assessment to the fire damaged areas including high traffic zones.
This consists of recording a list of all affected apartments and communal areas on site. Contact details are taken for all tenants and photographic evidence is then taken and collated.
Risks are identified and then actioned - this is where barriers and signage are erected to prevent any falls slips and trips/ electrical systems such as temporary lighting is fitted/lifts are put in or out of use.
Damaged items and fire debris is then removed and disposed of by our waste teams adhering to health and safety.
When the building is deemed safe, we allow tenants to collect any essential items, apartments and communal areas are secured if deemed unsafe and we erect hard standing barriers and boarding to ensure no access to the building if out of use.
In response to a fire emergency our teams are a key point of contact and work closely with the police and fire service by sharing factual, relevant, and valuable information such as access codes, location of utilities, and property managers details, promoting excellence practice ensures that key information is shared to prevent any further loss or damage.
