High Rise Safety

Residents invited to discuss fire safety at High Rise Residents’ Forum

Residents of high rise blocks across Greater Manchester are invited to the High Rise Residents' Forum to discuss any fire safety concerns and learn more about the ongoing work of the High Rise Taskforce.

The forum, which will be taking place on Thursday 11 July in the Manchester Suite at the GMFRS Training and Development Centre, will be hosted by GMFRS who will provide an update on the ongoing work that is being done to reassure people living in high rise buildings across the region since the Grenfell Tower tragedy.

The fire service will also be using the meeting to gain an understanding of the impact the Grenfell Tower fire has had on Greater Manchester residents. The responses received will be used to help shape the Greater Manchester High Rise Task Force’s response to the current Government consultation, which is due to close on the 31 July.

The meeting is open to all affected high rise residents and is an opportunity to discuss issues and concerns about fire safety. You can book your space for the High Rise Residents' Forum here:
