If there is a fire, don't tackle it yourself - get out, stay out and call 999
You can get advice on the fire service website, which has lots of information on fire safety in the home and how to keep safe.
If you are concerned that the fire precautions in your property are defective or inadequate, you should contact your landlord in the first instance. This will give them the opportunity to undertake any necessary work. If there are problems, you can also contact Environmental Health here at the council.
