While apartment living has many advantages, the fire at the Grenfell Tower in London and other fire events in Australia and around the world have highlighted the importance of fire safety in high-rise apartment buildings.
To help prevent similar fire incidents, building owners must remain vigilant in the maintenance and routine servicing of fire safety measures and have in place building emergency response plans and procedures in the event of a fire. Occupants also have a part to play in keeping themselves and their buildings safe from fire.
This fact sheet outlines important fire safety measures, the various parties’ maintenance obligations and where to look for further information.
