How many times do we take alarms for granted??
Yesterday when a resident heard an alarm from inside an apartment she luckily took notice, She had previously seen the resident leave the apartment block and could start to smell smoke. She called us and then the emergency services were called.
The communal alarms went off and everyone evacuated safely.
The fire service attended and there was no damage done.
We would like to thank the resident and we are pleased this situation was dealt with efficiently and effectively for the safety of all residents.
Also a reminder if you do hear alarms remember…it could be for real.
