Although theses buildings were not built, owned or managed by Optivo, we wanted to share a number of ways you can reduce the risk of fire in your home.

This includes never using a barbecue (including a disposable one) indoors or on a balcony and never leaving anything with a flame (like cigarettes) unattended.

We’ve pulled together some further, general, advice from the London Fire Brigade here.

The list is not exhaustive, so please visit their website for more great advice.
