Grenfell Tower,
West London

15 June 2017

Our thoughts go out to all those affected by the tragic fire at Grenfell Tower in West London on Tuesday night.

We want to reassure you that we take fire safety and prevention very seriously. Customer safety is our top priority.

Fire arrangements for our homes are designed in compliance with building regulations. Measures taken to ensure our homes are safe are specific to the building type, both in terms of design and structure.

We follow fire service guidance and take regular advice from independent specialists on these measures: all our homes are regularly Fire Risk Assessed. We recognise that fire authorities in some parts of the country are giving different advice. Our advice conforms to the advice of the London Fire Brigade which is our lead fire authority as a national housing association.

Further fire safety advice from the London Fire Brigade is available on their website.

We’ll keep our policies under review, taking direction from the fire service and independent specialists. We will also make sure we comply with any recommendations made as a result of the investigation into the Grenfell Tower fire.

As always if you have a specific concern about your property, contact us on 0303 123 1890 or customerservice@guinness.org.uk
