As part of our joint working relationship with the London Fire Brigade (LFB) they conducted a training exercise at 45-88 Upper Fosters on Sunday 8 October. This involved crews from the local fire station in Hendon working alongside the Bedfordshire Fire and Rescue Service.
The drill replicated a high-rise flat fire and consisted of LFB crews setting up a command post on one of the floors, hoses then being deployed on the ‘affected’ floor and a water supply being secured from the local hydrant.
You should have recently received a copy of the Barnet Homes Fire safety booklet which came with the last addition of AtHome which gives some useful tips on fire prevention. A copy can be found on the Barnet Homes website.
