Action on discovery of fire
Sound the alarm by breaking the nearest break glass points that can be found in every corridor.
If you are trained, competent and it is safe to do so, you may attempt to tackle a small fire with a fire extinguisher. You may also need to do so if a fire is blocking your escape route.
If you have not already done so, after leaving the building, call the fire brigade immediately on 999 and inform them that there is a fire at Three Courts, Wellesley Road W4 4LE.
Action after hearing the fire alarm
Leave the building by the nearest fire exit, using the stairs, and close all doors behind you.
Do not use the lift, or stop to collect items or pets, or return to your flat.
Report to the fire assembly point in Turnham Green Park, using your nearest available exit.
Please beware of emergency vehicles, do not obstruct access, do not re-enter the building until the fire brigade has advised that it is safe to do so and do not put yourself at risk!
Stay put flats/disabled persons
If it is safe to do so, assist people with disabilities to evacuate the building as necessary.
If you have a disability and it is safe to remain in your flat, or you are unable to evacuate, notify the emergency services of the fire by calling 999 and advising your flat number. Wait near an accessible external window until the emergency services arrive. Keep all doors closed, block the bottom of them to prevent smoke spreading and open the window to call for attention. It is probably safer to evacuate, if you are able to do so, than to stay put.
