Fire Door Safety Week20th - 26th SEPTEMBER 2021

Safety doesn’t happen by accident.

We know that security and safety are high on the agenda for homeowners and renters however,  fire safety is considered less of a priority. In fact, people are six times more likely to report a heating system issue than a fire door one, and people are twice as likely to report a toilet not flushing or no hot water than a fire door issue. Fire Door Safety Week aims to raise the awareness of the critical role that fire doors play in saving lives and protecting property in the unfortunate event of a fire. Make Time to Save Lives.
