Statement from Port of Leith Housing Association on fire safety

Keith Anderson, Chief Executive, Port of Leith Housing Association, said:

“Following the tragic fire at Grenfell Tower in London this week, we would like to assure everyone living in a Port of Leith Housing Association home that we take your safety very seriously. All of our properties have the highest standards of fire safety and we perform regular fire safety checks and maintenance servicing to fire safety systems.

“We strictly follow fire safety regulations on the installation of dry risers, fire fighting lifts and sprinkler systems as required.

“We urge all our tenants to assist us by keeping all communal areas clear, not tampering with fire safety systems such as smoke vents or fire alarm sensors and regularly testing their domestic smoke alarms.”
