Agency Address :

• A number of fire safety designs have been prepared for the school in the past but all consider buildings in isolation – none address a school‐wide fire safety approach.
• As a result there are six separate fire alarm systems present, four of which are installed to a version of NZS 4512 and two of which are enhanced security systems.
• None of these systems communicates to any of the other systems.
• This current system does not meet minimum MOE requirements for a Type 4 analogue addressable alarm.
• In addition the School Hall fails to comply with fire design requirements re emergency lighting, egress and fire rated surfaces – and this needs to be addressed.
