Working with West Midland Fire Service in Erdington to increase fire safety in our houses by beginning to introduce the fire service recommended level 7 fire retardant bedding.
We have teamed up with WMFS to ensure that every new resident who moves into a Prospect house will receive a visit from WMFS to complete a safe and well session. They discuss all aspects of fire safety for the individual and the house. WMFS will provide fire retardant bedding for high-risk residents and extra forms of alerting equipment for those residents that may sleep deeply due to illness, alcohol use or substances or for those that have hearing impairment e.g. vibrating pad to go under their pillow, flashing lights and loud alarms fitted directly in their room. As a result of this partnership, Prospect Housing will soon be providing the highest quality, fire retardant bedding in all our rooms as standard.
