      Hi there

      I am revamping our fire route by-law for the City of Waterloo and wanted to know how to determine if a property requires a fire route access.
      OBC 3.2.5 describes that any building that is 3 stories or above OR is more than 600 square meters in building area requires a fire route access. Does this mean only buildings that are 3 stories or more in height require a fire route access and what about residential complexes that have numerous units but are not 3 stories in height.
      Also, do schools or churches require a fire route access as well.

      Sorry for asking all these questions, any help would be appreciated.

      Please respond to the following e mail address:

      Thank you
