Leichhardt Council plays an active role in promoting fire safety awareness amongst the community, as Council has a statutory duty to pursue legislative requirements which govern fire safety.
The following information is important for all property owners, property managers, tenants, and business operators who own, occupy or manage buildings throughout the municipality ranging from various types of residential properties to commercial, retail and industrial premises. This information aims to increase general fire safety awareness, and develop an understanding of modern day fire safety issues and how Council commonly deals with building fire safety.
The NSW Fire and Rescue website also has valuable information about Home Fire Safety including a Fire Safety Audit Tool and a Fire Safety Checklist.
