Emergency Procedures Safety Information
Hester Canterbury has recently had all our safety procedures revised and we continue to be compliant with legislative requirements and “best practice”.You will receive an updated Emergency Procedures Information Form for each apartment, please dispose of any earlier instruction forms and place a new form in a prominent position in your home.It is invaluable to take the time to familiarize and learn the guidelines provided in the information.

Useful to Know
One of our resident was recently advised by a Financial Director to write on any documents the full “2020” for the year and not just “20”. By doing so no one can fraudulently alter the date my making it 2018, 2019 and so on.
