Justice DY Chandrachud led bench of #SupremeCourt to shortly hear its suo motu case regarding Proper Treatment of Covid 19 Patients and Dignified Handling of Dead Bodies in the Hospitals
Sr Adv Dushyant Dave appears

Sr Adv Maninder Singh seeks two weeks time to file a reply
Dave: Our family members have died in most unfortunate scenario in Gujarat. State has failed to take measures and its an abject failure on their part. All hearings before the commission was virtually but was of no help. This report will have no sanctity then.

1/8 #QueensSpeech '21 is a mixed bag in terms of #EndOurCladdingScandal and for #leaseholdreform

As promised, the government has announced a bill to ban new ground rents. Commitments were made during the #FireSafetyBill debates last month to also look at forfeiture.
2/8 Implementing the rest of the Law Commission's recent reports on #leaseholdreform is expected to wait until later.

The balance of the package outlined important reforms on cheaper lease extension, easier Right To Manage and improving commonhold.

We need all these reforms.
3/8 As expected, the government also promises that the #BuildingSafetyBill is to be introduced this session.

We wait to see if the deeply unpopular Building Safety Charge is still included and how "high risk buildings" will actually be defined in the new law.

We have also asked #Brent and #Harrow London Assembly candidates what they will do for leaseholders in #claddingscandal

We have received three responses from:
@KrupeshHirani of @UKLabour
@anton_georgiou of @LibDems
@IPriceReformUK of @reformparty_uk

Brent and Harrow's @UKLabour candidate @KrupeshHirani speaks about @SadiqKhan's suggested levy on developers to fund to #EndOurCladdingScandal in #London.
@LibDems candidate @anton_georgiou and @LondonLibDems will focus on practical steps implemented at City Hall: not work with developers who do not fix existing buildings, and trialling a public #FireSafety register.

Not criticising a good deed, but there needs to be better education for drivers on how to respond to a vehicle #fires in road #tunnels. A 🧵

#firesafety #fireengineering #roadsafety #driving
Means of escape & access for the fire & rescue services are part of the design considerations for modern road tunnels.

For a single direction tunnel, the assumption is that drivers will stop before the fire & leave their vehicles, evacuating in the opposite direction.
It’s not a good idea to drive past the fire as smoke control systems will typically be designed to ventilate smoke in the direction of travel & protect the means of escape/firefighter access route.

Passing the fire can lead to you being trapped in hot smoke & unable to breath.

1/7 The Government’s handling of the cladding crisis has lacked any sense of grip or urgency. We have deep concerns that people are being put at risk, trapped in flammable buildings for a third lockdown, with leaseholders placed in an impossible position.…
2/7 Ministers promised over15 times that cladding costs wouldn't be passed on to leaseholders, but have broken their promises. Labour has tabled more amendments to the #FireSafetyBill to lock into law the principle that leaseholders are protected from unfair fire safety costs.
3/7 Labour is supportive of other amendments which help achieve this goal. The amendment tabled by McPartland and Smith provides welcome clarity on the specific costs that would be prevented from being passed on to leaseholders, but Labour has sought to go further.

@sarahjolney1 @mhclg 1/3 Sadly waking watch relief fund should be called the fire alarm relief fund

I’d surmise @govuk had the £30mil in contingency, they know fine well @mhclg backed @lgahousing guidance repeatedly stressed communal fire alarms = false fire alarms (see heard and embedded posts)
@sarahjolney1 @mhclg @GOVUK @lgahousing 2/3 @mhclg have been very sly in down grading the standards in the building safety fund from new build combustible cladding ban to intended pre #grenfell standards

This reduces the number to blocks in scope for limited funding & demand on sector = quicker recovery

Is it safe?
@sarahjolney1 @mhclg @GOVUK @lgahousing 3/3 Why is @mhclg gifting @RICSnews £700k of public funds for #EWS1 which remains open to fraud

When Australian - Victoria came up with a more robust federal audit regime in Nov 2017

+ no ghastly wait on #Hackitt white elephant or new Legislation - when operation clean sweep

Yesterday I called on @BorisJohnson, key ministers & stakeholders to launch a #publicinquiry into UK #Hospital #FireSafety.

As the second wave of #covid19 picks up critical mass must address the plethora of fire safety defects & concerns.

Press DM for comment
We do appear to have a fire safety problem in UK hospitals

@ukhomeoffice stats indicates an alarming number of fires in high rise hospitals & in the thread woefully inadequate PFI new build quality to legacy issues.
When @NFCC_FireChiefs @labcuk both advise member enforcement agencies to take a soft touch to fire safety in mega #nightinggale field hospitals & significant departures from Health technical memorandum (HTM) Firecode alarm bells are ringing.

wider UK Healthcare fire cases THREAD
failures by @NHSuk @DHSCgovuk to assure safety following five london hospital fires & post #grenfell…
Major life loss events to fire in health care premisses are rare but not unknown.

However during 2008/2009 the sector was rocked by the five London hospital fires + one more during this pan-london post incidence report…
In 2010 health sector was hit with austerity cuts from which NHS has never truly recovered

Estates & safety budgets were decimated.

Compounding issues faced by under resourced fire safety managers.

However, what happend in new Hospitals accross the country was criminal

@GeoffWilkinson @SadiqKhan @NightingaleLDN @fionatwycross @LondonFire @NFCC_FireChiefs @JuliaHB1 As Geoff points out we don’t see approvals or full robust fire safety strategy for @NightingaleLDN

Concerning the basis of HTM05-02 progressive horizontal evacuation - during a fire incident moving patients from a fire area to adjacent safe zone appears to be abandoned.
@GeoffWilkinson @SadiqKhan @NightingaleLDN @fionatwycross @LondonFire @NFCC_FireChiefs @JuliaHB1 In very high dependence units progressive evacuation may result in a fatality so fire tight boxed by compartmentation & sub-compartments permits defend in place + evacuation only as a last resort.

It’s unclear how this will be achieved in @NightingaleLDN
@GeoffWilkinson @SadiqKhan @NightingaleLDN @fionatwycross @LondonFire @NFCC_FireChiefs @JuliaHB1 With such expansive uncompartmented floor areas clearly not complying with the core requirements of HTM05-02

More over where very high dependancy areas such as ICU / ACU patient areas are designated & requiring a smaller sub-compartments units to limit fuel load + fire spread

Welcome to day 23 September is #PreparednessMonth. Emergencies can also happen at night and so we're joined by @northantsfire and many others talking about #HazardHunt, #FireSafety and how to be better prepared for a #SafeEscape evacuation at night.

↙️open 'show this thread' Image
Let's begin with this excellent dramatization video from 🇨🇦by @The_Cooperators illustrating why personal #preparedness is crucial for #SafeEscape, #HomeFiresafety
😴⏰🔥😱↔️Being woken up by your fire alarm in the middle of the night is not fun and can be highly disorienting. A safe escape in such a situation may well depend on previous experience. Practise means you will be ready and better prepared.
