The tragic incident in June 2017, at Grenfell Tower, West London brought into focus the importance of fire safety.

After the fire the Council formed a Fire Safety Task Force that brought together officers from the London Fire Brigade and the borough's main providers of social housing.

The task force set up a specialist team of officers to co-ordinate the work of fire safety in Bexley. The team are gathering information relating to fire safety for all shared residential property, schools, care facilities and council owned buildings to ensure that they meet fire safety standards.

There are some simple tips for you to think about to make sure your home is safe at London Fire Brigade - Fire safety at home.
