Fire Safety Audits to be carried out across Merseyside

Fire Safety Audits to be carried out across Merseyside

Friday, 30 June 2017

Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service will be carrying out Fire Safety Audits in Residential High Rise Premises across Merseyside beginning this Monday, 3rd July to ensure the safety of residents.

We are working closely with partner organisations such as councils and housing trusts to ensure that cladding is tested.

We are testing local water hydrant networks to ensure they are functioning correctly.

We are visiting high-rise properties to test the dry risers (vertical water mains running the height of the building) to ensure correct functioning.

Officers will be visiting residents to provide Home Fire Safety Checks and offer advice.

If family members have any concerns over elderly or vulnerable relatives living in high rise premises then call Fire Service Direct 0800 731 5958 (weekdays) or email

Our Social Media and website are not monitored 24/7- in an emergency please dial 999.
