Common areas


Your building’s common areas should be safe spaces for everyone. Keep them free from fire hazards by following these tips.

Hallways are for people


Keep hallways and emergency exits clear at all times.

Keep fire doors closed


Fire doors help prevent the spread of smoke and fire. Never leave them propped open.

Garbage goes in the chute


Keep garbage chutes closed and the area tidy.

Keep stairwells clear


Never store items in a stairwell. The stairs need to be clear so you can evacuate the building safely during a fire emergency.


Remove lint every time


Always check and clean the lint trap before using the dryer.
