It is critical that buildings are constructed to contemporary standards, and regularly upgraded and maintained, to ensure appropriate fire safety standards are maintained.
Hurstville City Council’s Fire Safety Officers and Building Surveyors work closely with NSW Fire Brigades to provide a high level of fire safety in our community.
We also team with NSW Fire Brigades and licensing Police to conduct regular fire safety inspections of bars, clubs and other entertainment venues.
Council is committed to educating building owners, managers and occupiers about their legal responsibilities regarding fire safety.
Council and the NSW Fire Brigades can issue orders to ensure that buildings and temporary structures are safe and will take immediate action to protect lives.
