What are the condo rules currently in place regarding working fire alarms, fire extinguishers, fire place inspection?
This is a very timely question in light of a death that occurred in a townhome condominium complex in the past week in Winnipeg, MB. Having reviewed the Condominium Act, it is silent on the subject. This is not surprising. The condominium Act regulates how condo developments are created, governed, and operated. It is not concerned with building codes or fire safety regulations. This forum is not equipped to provide you with detailed information on current fire safety regulations. However, the following is a link to the Manitoba Fire Commissioner’s website where you will find all you need to know.
Of particular interest, I encourage you to examine the Fire Safety Checklist – Dwellings and Buildings at the following link. I understand that this is the checklist that a fire inspector would use when doing an inspection of your site.
Keep in mind that some responsibilities will be the condo corporations, and other items will be the unit owner’s. Your governing documents might provide some direction concerning the division of responsibilities. I hope this helps.
