It is critical that buildings are designed and constructed to relevant standards, and regularly upgraded and maintained, to ensure appropriate fire safety standards are maintained.
Hurstville City Council’s Fire Safety Officer and Building Surveyors work in conjunction with Fire and Rescue NSW to provide a level of fire safety expected by the community.
We also team with Fire and Rescue NSW and licensing NSW 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 and awareness.
Council and Fire and Rescue NSW can issue orders to ensure that buildings and temporary structures are safe and will take immediate action to protect lives.
