      Hey peeps, hope everyone is doing well, just wondering what other municipalities are doing with us prevention people?

      I’m off the road other than emergencies, told to stay put in office and catch up on paperwork.


      How bout the rest of y’all!

      We are pretty much under the same restrictions. Only perform inspections if they are absolutely necessary.

      I did one site visit today but otherwise trying to stick to the office. Nothing official though.

      How do we determine the necessity of the inspection?  I can’t find the exact wording (I thought it was in TG-01-2012) that we have to evaluate based on complaint or request to determine if an inspection is warranted but what criteria do we use to make that determination? How do we properly evaluate without seeing the place considering so many property owners haven’t got the slightest clue of the requirements for their building?

      Resident requesting help with a smoke alarm?

      Inspection request due to property sale?

      General complaint against a property?

      Here in Perth, we don’t have staffing to conduct routine inspections so those aren’t an issue.

      In Windsor – Fire Prevention – As all inspections are to be pre-booked as per the existing SOP. When FPO’s are booking appointments they are to ask if the person they are dealing/meeting with has traveled out of the country within the last 14 days and if they are experiencing a persistent cough or flu like symptoms. If they are, the inspector shall re-schedule the inspection to a later date. No inspection of hotels, vulnerable occupancies or hospitals are to take place.; all other inspection activities are business as usual; current PPE protocols are to be followed. All training out of town is cancelled – it will be rescheduled as soon as possible when the release notification has been issued by the CAO. All large scale public relations events and station tours have been cancelled. Ensure your stock of hand sanitizer and N95 masks that form part of your vehicle supplied PPE is checked and available.
