The latest version of AS 2419.1, covering the design, installation and commissioning, and testing of fire hydrant installations, was published on 3 September, 2021. 


The current public comment draft of the NCC now references AS2419.1-2021.  


The new standard introduces a range of changes and improvements, the most significant of these being limiting the scope of standard. This change will now require all practitioners to develop performance solutions for fire hydrant system designs that are outside of the standard's scope.  Many other changes are also included in this revision. 


Station Officer Mark Porter, from Fire and Rescue NSW, was the drafting leader on this standard, and in this seminar he will provide an overview of the major changes in AS 2419.1-2021, explain what has changed, and why.

Are you a BPAD practitioner or interested in bushfire issues? 


On Wednesday, 12 October, we'll be running a seminar at the Esplanade Hotel in Fremantle where we'll update practitioners about progress with the Bushfire Planning and Development (BPAD) scheme, the implications of NCC 2022 changes, and the new fire danger rating system. 


This six-hour event will include briefings from FPA Australia about BPAD, provide answers to practitioner questions and concerns, clarify host presentations by some of our government stakeholders, and a conduct a detailed discussion of current case law. 


It will conclude with a small workshop where we will identify areas for improvement in both the BPAD scheme and the broader industry. 


Attendees can come in person, or participate by Zoom - if you're in the former group, don't miss out on the chance to network with your peers after the seminar! 


This event gives attendees an ideal opportunity to earn 6 CPD points and to get greater insights into what is expected of you as a BPAD practitioner.

Seminar:  Working at the Interface:  when systems connect


Presented by David Isaac, Fire Industry Academy


Date:              Thursday, 27 October, 2022

Cost: Members:

CPD: 1.5 hours


The interfacing of systems is a growing feature of fire safety strategies.  


While it increases complexity, it aims to ensure that fire safety measures work together in the most efficient way to provide protection and safety to occupants.  


However, system interfacing is often set up badly and is poorly understood by those who are designing, installing, and maintaining these systems or assessing their performance.  


In this webinar, David Isaac will examine the issues that can arise between systems, how to design an interface to provide compliance and integrity, and how they might be managed in systems that are already installed.
