Requirement to conduct trial evacuations and deliver training programs is suspended under the current Covid-19 Alert Level.

You are currently not required to carry out trial evacuations or deliver training programmes to maintain your approved evacuation scheme. For more information and to learn when you need to restart these read here.

Once physical distancing requirements are removed then building owners should resume their normal requirements for maintaining their evacuation scheme. For those building owners where the six monthly maintenance requirement falls within a period at which physical distancing requirements are in force, the corrected date to resume evacuation scheme maintenance activities is calculated by adding the number of days since August 18 to the original due date.

If you have any questions, please contact the Fire Information Unit on 0800 347 346 or email us at fireinfo@fireandemergency.nz
