Fire Safety at Clubs and Pubs
Fire safety issues in both pubs and clubs are the topic of investigation these days for Newcastle Police officers and New South Wales Fire and Rescue. A joint operation was conducted last weekend in an effort to tackle fire safety concerns in pubs and clubs throughout the city. Adam Gilligan, a Compliance Services Manager claims that the operation is focusing on various priority issues, such as fire safety exits being blocked, smoke detection, alarm systems and capacity issues.
The Importance of Fire Safety
Gilligan implied that it is imperative that measures are set to alert patrons and staff in the occurrence of a fire and to evacuate them safely and quickly.
An concentrated effort is being made to ensure that every building upholds the required fire safety codes and measures. Throughout their investigation, a number of issues were found in a variety of establishments relating to fire exits, smoke detectors and fire alarms. Those who broke the regulations can be subjected to fines and prosecution.
Gilligan says the operation will ensure that pubs and clubs are aware that they must ensure the safety of all of their patrons and staff. The operation is set to be continuous and those who endanger their patrons may not only face fines but also immediate closure.
