​​​Fire safety is important to ensure the safety of the lives of the people who live, work and visit our City.

Many buildings were erected long before the introduction of current building standards and, as a result, are a fire safety risk. Council conducts inspections to ensure buildings are safe. When buildings upgrade, there's a process involved to minimise risk. In addition to other measures; hose reels, hydrants, exit signs, portable fire extinguishers and smoke alarms must be made available, and must meet relevant maintenance standards.

Council issues​ orders, which you are responsible for in order to adhere to fire safety laws, although you can resolve any queries or issues with us if you dispute any aspect of the required work.​
