Thousands of families are living in high-rise properties in the UK. Nearly all of these homes do not have adequate safety systems.
Chief Fire Officers across the UK have said that it is proven that fitting homes with fire safety systems, like sprinklers, saves people’s lives in the event of a fire.
The Labour party is urging the government to set aside vital funding in the 2017 Budget for local authorities and housing associations to fit sprinklers into tower blocks, to protect the lives of tens of thousands of people across the country.
We know that fitting high-rise tower blocks with sprinklers could save thousands of lives. That’s why we’re urging the Tories to pledge vital funds to install sprinklers, to keep families safe from fire.
