We're urging Theresa May to make homes safe from fire.

A great video and I would encourage everyone to sign the letter to the prime minister to make social housing homes safe but dare I say pretty much all Housing blocks should have this protection as well as all of our schools?

Dear John

Thousands of families are living in high-rise properties in the UK, yet only an estimated 2 per cent of blocks have sprinkler systems. The evidence is clear, fitting homes with fire safety systems, like sprinklers, saves people's lives in the event of a fire.

So today I am calling on the government to use the Autumn Budget to make homes safe. Will you join me?
Theresa May — we urge you to fit all high-rise social housing with life-saving sprinkler systems:

Independent research has shown that sprinklers are hugely effective — extinguishing or containing fires in 99 per cent of cases.

Sign our letter now to help us make sure that residents of high rise social housing can sleep safe in the knowledge that avoidable disasters will not happen to them.

Together we can make homes safe.

Leader of the Labour Party
