London Fire Brigade (LFB) has not taken formal action against any Responsible Persons over failures to maintain interim fire safety measures where they have been put in place. LFB has instituted ad hoc checks by local fire station-based crews of those premises with interim measures to ensure they remain in place until the required remediation works are carried out. In addition, LFB has procedures in place to respond to fire safety concerns raised by residents in any premises, including those blocks with interim measures in place.
