Escape routes

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

According to the fire department hallways and stairwells are considered escape routes.

Therefore, there must be no items located in the stairwells or in the entrance area. That includes bikes, prams, ladders, shelfs, shoes or any other items. Everything located in the hallways and stairwells will be removed without warning. If there’s a bill for removal it will be charged directly to the tenant.

In the case of a fire inspection, the fire department will fine the estate if the rules demanding free passage are not followed, and items are in the stairwells. The fine will be passed on to the tenant or tenants in question.
