Central Fire Station
Due to the ever-evolving situation regarding COVID-19, the Fire Authority have made some changes to the procedure for annual licensing.
For premises that are opening, the following advice refers to the servicing of the fire detection and alarm system, emergency lighting system and fire extinguishers in the premises as part of the annual licence renewal;
For premises that are open, we would remind owners and management of their fire safety obligations under Section 18(2) of the Fire Services Act 1981 & 2003 which states that;
“It shall be duty of every person having control over premises to which this section applies to take all reasonable measures to guard against the outbreak of fire on such premises, and to ensure as far as reasonably practicable the safety of persons on the premises in the event of an outbreak of fire”.
Inspections of licensed premises may be carried out at the discretion of the Fire Authority. Please ensure that your complete Fire Safety Register is available for inspection. Kildare Fire Authority will lodge objections to licence renewals where serious fire safety issues are encountered.
