Keep Your Building Fire Safe with HTC Group

Fire system maintenance exists to ensure that fire hydrants and other fire protection systems are in working order in the event of a fire. Building owners and property managers are required by law to ensure all fire system maintenance has been conducted by a licensed fire maintenance technician, in order to protect the lives and livelihoods of the occupants.

HTC Group makes fire system maintenance and safety compliance easy with our services, offering regular fire hydrant testing and inspection services for your fire safety systems (including Fire Hydrants, Fire Extinguishers & Fire Hose Reels) in accordance with the Australian Standard AS1851-2012. We can produce Annual Occupier Statements for building owners and occupiers under the Queensland Development Code MP6.1.

We pride ourselves on offering a transparent service, and will not charge you for defect rectifications until they have been identified, explained and approved for work.

Need help managing your requirements as a business owner or occupier? Contact HTC Group Today. We offer once-off and ongoing fire protection services.

Managing Fire Protection Compliance

Keeping your facility compliant with fire protection and safety legislation can be complicated. Between the Building Act, the Building Fire Safety Regulation, the Queensland Development Code (QDC MP 6.1) and the Australian Standard AS1851, there are many moving parts to conducting a fire maintenance inspection. 

Our mission is to help you understand what we’re doing on-site, what that means for you and your business, and what the most effective solution is. 

Contact HTC Group to learn more.

The following items are defined as “special fire safety measures” that require maintenance at the following intervals as given in AS1851:2012, Table 1.11(A).

Fire Equipment Inspection & Fire Maintenance Checklist

Keeping your site compliant involves the following four steps:
