On Discovering A Fire
If a fire starts within your apartment you should telephone the fire brigade on 999 or 112. The emergency services will ask you for details of the incident and the address and flat in which you live.
The full postal address is:
Hyelm – Old Street
43 New North Road,
London N1 6JB.
You should then proceed immediately to the building evacuation point using the nearest available fire exit. Only if possible, close windows and doors on your way out to prevent the spread of fire.
If you discover a fire in any of the communal areas within the building you should operate the nearest emergency call point and make your way immediately to the evacuation point using the nearest available fire exit. Do you return to your flat to collect any belongings.
On Hearing The Fire Alarm

- Do not use the lift.
- Remain calm and quiet and await the arrival of the fire brigade. Keep off the road to allow free access to the fire brigade and passing traffic. Do not re-enter the building until told to do so by the fire brigade.
- Remember to wear shoes and a coat if possible. Under no circumstances, however, must you place yourself in any personal danger.
- Do not return to your flat to collect any belongings.
- Remain a social distance from other people.
