Like all buildings, 101 Collins Street is required to maintain numerous life safety systems (i.e. Essential Safety Measures) to protect building occupants in the event of an emergency. These systems include:
- Fire Suppression Systems including sprinklers, hose reels, fire hydrants and fire extinguishers;
- Smoke Control Systems to remove smoke from the building;
- EWIS (Emergency Warning and Intercommunication System) to facilitate managed and orderly building evacuations.
Each of these systems is regularly inspected and tested by external providers to ensure they will operate effectively when they are needed.
