After a four month transitional period for the 2017 Map of Bush Fire Prone Areas, new regulations and amendments to the Building Code of Australia have come into practice as of 30 September 2017. Included are various fire protection measures.
It’s important to make sure you’re aware of these and whether your property falls into the areas indicated. You’ll need to increase your insurance accordingly to make sure you’re adequately covered if you do.
Your Phoenix Insurance Broker can talk you through the new regulations further. Get in touch today on 9367 7399.
