              I recently went through a fire drill in my apartment complex. We were educated on fire safety mechanisms and told that the main cause of deaths is due to the smoke and not due to the fire. It's important to build fire proof and ventilated structures so that major fire disasters can be averted.

                    ‘Submit proof of fire safety measures’

                    FIRE BRIGADE TO BUILDINGS Residential, commercial structures asked to submit fire safety certificates to BMC every six months or face the music

                    Mumbai fire brigade on Friday asked residential and commercial structures in the city to submit fire safety certificates to the civic body every six months. Those flouting the norm will have to pay a fine of Rs50,000 or face imprisonment of up to three years.

                    All structures i ncluding residential and commercial that are 24 metres (approximately four to six storeyed structures) or above fall under Maharashtra Fire Safety and Life Safety Prevention Act, 2006, making it mandatory for them to install the required fire safety equipment.

                    To ensure the systems are functional and updated, the Act mandates the submission of fire safety certificates to the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) every six months.

                    T he BMC has approved licenced agencies t hat t he buildings can approach for doing the necessary checks and issuing the certificate.

                    For the convenience of citizens, the civic body will put up the list of licenced agencies on its website - Welcome to The Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai.

                    The fire safety certificates need to be submitted to the BMC i n January and July every year.

                    “If the certificate is not submitted, a notice will be issued to t he building’s owner or occupier. If the norm is not followed even after the notice has been issued, members concerned will have to pay a fine of Rs50,000 or face imprisonment of up to three years,” said an official from the fire brigade, on condition of anonymity.
                    “We are also working on a making the procedure as simple as possible for the benefit of the citizens. Soon the certificates can even be uploaded on our website. Until then the certificate and Fire Act Form B must be submitted at the local fire station,” the official added.
                    This move has been made as the fire brigade receives only around 20 certificates in a month, a proof that fire safety equipment in the structures is functional.
                    Chief fire officer PS Rahangdale said: “We decided to penalise the building society members and owners as there are many that do not maintain fire safety equipment.”

                    “It is important that the basic fire safety equipment in each building is upgraded and functional as they play a key role in carrying out rescue and fire-fighting operations,” added Rahangdale.

                    In certain cases, the norms are also applicable to buildings that are less than 24 meters high such as malls and commercial structures, fire officials added.
