Residents living close to Grenfell Tower are being warned not to be alarmed when a fire safety drill takes place on Thursday (November 2).
Described as “an entirely routine process”, it is designed to make sure those working on the site of the stricken building remain safe, and is not in response to any change in the stability of the tower.
It will take place between 11.30am and 11.45am, Kensington and Chelsea Council says.
People living close by in the Lancaster West Estate may hear a siren and see fire crews attend, while those working within the tower will leave but remain within the police corden.
No action will be required from residents during the test, but they are being warned that if the siren sounds at any other time that evacuation procedures should be followed.
In the weeks following the fire, the tower’s traumatised neighbours fled their homes in fear when they were evacuated after a fire alarm sounded off at nearby Baseline Studios.
Authorities have previously said that Grenfell poses no risk to the general public or those living and working close by.
The Grenfell Response Team said in July that movement in the building’s structure had been detected, but this was fully expected following the intensity of the blaze on June 14.
