Condominiums present special fire safety concerns. When adhered to, local fire and construction codes can ensure that high-rises are designed to minimize the likelihood of a major fire. High-rise fires often result from the same causes as fires in single dwelling homes - cooking and heating equipment, smoking, children playing with matches and lighters, electrical systems and arson. The attached document lists some of the basic fire regulations governing the operation of high-rise condominium occupancies. If you answer ‘No’ to any of the questions in the document, maintenance, servicing or inspection is required to ensure your building meets current safety standards.
