Urban Land & Housing Group – Tenant Tips – Why is a fire inspection Necessary for my building?
During the winter of 2005, 13, people, including 7 children died in house/unit fires across NSW. In response to high number of deaths, the NSW parliament enacted the Environment Planning and Assessment Amendment (Smoke Alarms) Regulation 2006, which came into effect from 1st ,May 2006.
Essentially under the regulation, all existing premises where a person sleeps require smoke alarms to be installed to certain section of the building to alert the occupants of impending danger.
Please let me know if you have any questions regarding smoke alarms or fire Inspections
