Balcony fire safety

Fire safety rules are in place to keep you safe when at home and using your balcony or communal areas. However, everyone is responsible for making sure that their home and block is as safe as possible.

Inside buildings there are walls and doors that can contain a fire, and a limited supply of oxygen to keep a fire burning. Outside, there’s an unlimited supply of oxygen and a fire can be blown quickly by the wind, spreading it upwards and outwards. This puts flats above you and your neighbours at risk.

We understand that you want to enjoy the use of the outside space of your home and block. If you have a balcony or garden, it is your responsibility to use it safely to prevent any fire risks.

If you have any questions, you can find out more about fire safety on our fire safety page, or please contact us on info@chg.org.uk or 0300 500 6262.
