Event description


Join us for this powerful and informative webinar on some insights, industry knowledge and expertise from Greg North - Senior Associate - Fire Engineer at Beca

“In the 2013 New Zealand Disability Survey, almost one in four New Zealanders or 1.1 million people identified as disabled. The survey noted that: ‘disability is defined as long-term limitation (resulting from impairment) in a person’s ability to carry out daily activities”.

Greg will talk about the issues around safe building evacuation, including those who have a disability or require special assistance. He will talk about what is important, who is responsible and what we can do together to ensure safer buildings for everyone in our communities.

This will include some clarification on the 'Fire and Emergency New Zealand Fire Safety Evacuation Procedures and Evacuation Schemes Regulations 2018' - rules - interpreations - possible design options and his experience with refuges.

Plus there will be a time of questions and answers for Greg, so come prepared

Jen Tyson - Building Networks marketing and PR manager will be facilitating this session
