 Engie Regeneration

All operatives will carry ID. Please do not let anyone in your property without the correct identification. The contractors will write to you separately asking you to allow access so that surveys can be carried out.

If you've had a fire detection system installed :

Your block is protected by a communal fire detection system that links the communal detectors in all flats and the stairwell/ communal area. If any communal detector is activated, alarms will sound in all flats and stairwell, until reset by the London Fire Brigade or Islington Council Repairs Team (tel: 0800 694 3344). 

If you hear the communal fire alarms, you must leave the block immediately and not re-enter until directed to do so by the London Fire Brigade. Please refer to the fire action notice displayed in the communal entrance. False alarms are very rare, so if you hear the communal alarms please treat it as an emergency.

You should always call the Fire Brigade on 999 to report a fire, as the communal system does not do this automatically.
