Fire Safety Regulations

Restricted mobility & the first floor

As a result of the recent visit of the Shabbaton choir which attracted large numbers of members, the board checked with the Health and Safety officer of the United Synagogue that we were complying with the various fire and other safety regulations.

To comply with the safety Officers recommendations, we are asking anyone who may have difficulty with mobility to make use of the ground floor. The reason for this restriction is that in the event of a fire, physical impairments will make evacuation difficult for the member and escape by others would also be impeded.

We would therefore ask any member with such difficulties not to use the first floor areas.
