In memory of the victims and in solidarity with the survivors of Grenfell
The unspeakable tragedy of Grenfell Tower is remembered and mourned in a moving film from The British Woodworking Federation, released during Fire Door Safety Week (FDSW).
The appalling fire in June 2017 that claimed 72 lives shocked London, the country and the world.
This tribute in memory of the victims and in solidarity with the survivors is presented by Hannah Mansell, spokesperson for FDSW, as well as British Woodworking Federation Head of Technical Research and Insight, Chair of the Passive Fire Protection Forum and a Trustee of the Children’s Burns Trust.
Hannah poignantly names some of the 72 individuals who died and asks: “How long would it take you to count to 72?”
“Take time to speak, and speak to remember” Hannah says, underlining that the awful tragedy must never be forgotten. It is everyone’s responsibility to make sure that learnings are made so that a similar tragedy does not happen again. That is why Fire Door Safety Week is so important, to help keep the fight for change alive.
This film is one of five that BWF is releasing for FDSW. The week aims to raise awareness of the critical role that fire doors play in protecting occupants, buildings and fire fighters in the event of a fire and draw attention to a legacy of neglect when it comes to fire door inspection and maintenance.
