Campaigning for better tower block safety.

Claire UdyClaire Udy, party member from Charles Dickens ward was out in Buckland this afternoon talking to residents about local issues and gathering signatures on our petition calling on Portsmouth City Council to install sprinklers in its high rise tower blocks.

Claire says:

The local fire service describe sprinklers like having a “firefighter in every room” and told us that there have been no fatalities resulting from a fire in this country where sprinklers have been installed.

We’ll be working with residents and community groups over the coming weeks to put pressure on the council to follow the lead of other local authorities and commit to having sprinkler systems installed ASAP.
