Fire Safety Building Regulations
This information is most suited to property owners and general business operators who own or operate in buildings other than single dwellings and townhouses, e.g. Class 1b and Classes 2 to 9 buildings under the Building Code of Australia (BCA). The Hills Shire Council has a statutory duty in pursuing the fulfilment of legislative requirements governing fire safety.
Residential home owners or tenants may also find the information useful in the Smoke Alarms section.
Fire can cause loss of life or property and disruption of production depending on the scale and extent of damage. Good housekeeping and maintenance of essential fire safety measures are of utmost importance in dealing with the current state of the property and workplace.
This information aims to increase general fire safety awareness, understanding of fire safety issues and how Council deals with building fire safety.
If you have any feedback, contact Council’s Building Control Coordinator - Fire Safety on 9843 0344.
