If in doubt, get out


‘Stay in your flat’ seems to be the standard fire advice (I live in Cambridge). Luckily my block of flats is only 2 storeys high, but if a neighbour’s flat was on fire I sure as hell wouldn’t stay in my own flat. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying anyone in London was in any way at fault if they remained in their flats. They were simply following these stupid rules. The advice should be changed to ‘If in doubt, get out’ (as long as you can do so safely). And having adequate fire precautions, especially in big blocks, should be a legal requirement (with regular checks) for councils and landlords.
