Two vacant flats will be used as part of a training exercise conducted by the London Fire Brigade today.
Firefighters will be at Napier House, Dunedin Road, Rainham, between 10am-4pm, where the flats will help to provide a realistic training exercise for crews from across London, preparing them for similar real life scenarios in the future.
Six fire engines will be used during the exercise and there will be an increase in emergency service personnel and sirens as part of the training in and around the area.
All occupants of the building being used and nearby residents have already been notified of the activity by the council.
This activity is part of the London Fire Brigade’s pre-planned training programme.
Havering Council’s housing staff will also be on the site throughout the day to answer any questions residents may have.
