OP1 Fire Protection of the Building



Intent 1:

To limit the probability that the use of exits other than for exiting will lead to exits being obstructed or not readily available in a fire situation, which could lead to emergency responders being delayed in gaining access to floor areas, which could lead to emergency response operations being delayed or ineffective, which could lead to the spread of fire, which could lead to damage to the building.

Intent 2:

To waive the prohibition in the first part of Sentence on the use of exits for other purposes, and to allow access to floor areas, on the basis that this use:

  • does not create injury hazards or risks of obstructions in exits,
  • does not compromise the availability of the exits in an emergency, and
  • has the benefit of facilitating access of emergency responders to floor areas.
