Fire and safety

Every building that is not a single residential dwelling or a residential garage is required to have fire safety measures in the building such as portable fire extinguishers, exit signs, fire hydrants and hose reels and the like tested annually. It is the building owners responsibility to provide a copy of the annual fire safety certificate to Council, to  NSW Fire and Rescue and prominently display in the building.
 
We promote building and occupant safety and can assist in helping building owners meet their  obligations, to annually test and  maintain building fire safety measures.
 
Should you wish to improve occupant and building safety in your building and have a general enquiry, please contact our Customer Service team on 4221 6111.
 
The following information aims to increase general fire safety awareness and develop an understanding of fire safety issues and how Council deals with building fire safety.
