Throughout Home Safety Week, which runs from Monday 14 until Sunday 20 June, Thirteen is highlighting how customers can keep themselves and their homes safe.

The week long event will see the Building Safety team working in partnership with housing services, involved customers and Cleveland Fire Brigade to visit a number of locations to speak to customers and provide advice and guidance on home safety.

Thirteen’s building safety operations manager Steph Kelley said: “Home safety is something which we should all take very seriously.

“We’ll be focussing on a number of safety elements ranging from how to prevent accidental fires in the home, to the importance of smoke and carbon monoxide alarms and what we do at Thirteen to ensure homes are safe, such as carrying out gas and electrical safety checks, both of which are a legal requirement.

“The team are continuing to work with customers to educate them about building and fire safety and what they can do to help themselves to stay safe in their home.

“We’re incredibly fortunate at Thirteen to have a dedicated and experienced building safety team, which includes two fire risk specialists, who have both served 30 years’ with the local fire brigade, this complements the technical expertise within the team, who work together to help keep communities and buildings safe.

“It’s vitally important that our customers are safe in their homes. We’ve pledged our ongoing commitment to building safety and we’re continuing to make further investment to make our properties even safer."
