IN view of the immediate risk to the occupiers of these apartments may I suggest the temporary solutions below whilst they await re cladding.

Each flat be supplied with a number of face masks with small oxygen cylinder and some form of fire proof overall.

Each block have thermal imaging CCTV Cameras link to the local fire station control room.

Smoke is one of the main problems when escaping from fire.

A suitable face mask/head cover with oxygen supply will solve this.

The risk of being burnt can be reduced by wearing some form of fire proof protective garment.

May I also suggest that thermal imaging cameras be linked to a fire brigade control room.

This will be far more efficient and they could sound the alarm in the block and send fire engines saving valuable time.
