Fire Issues in Strata Property

Thursday, March 17, 2011

What is strata property?


Strata property defined as building or collection of buildings where individuals with their small portion of their own known as lot but shares the ownership of common possessions such as walls, windows, roofs, driveways, fences, lawns, swimming pool and gardens, etc. Many people think strata properties are high rise buildings and vertical blocks of flats but keep in mind that townhouse and villa developments (the one level) also included in the strata schemes.

Being strata manager is not an easy task especially when you have to deal with various type of people living in the same block. Adheres to fire safety regulation is important, not because it is stated in the Act but this regulations ensured the safety of hundreds of lives in the building if the fire occurs. In strata properties the common cause of fire is electrical, usually related to cooking or heating equipment misuse and/or failure (Broadhead, R., 2010). In Malaysia, under the Strata Titles Act, it is mandatory for the Management Corporation (MC) of buildings such as apartments and condominiums to purchase fire insurance for the whole building. The individual unit owner is required to pay to the MC his respective premium portion.

 Prevention is Better Than Cure

As facility manager, these several actions shall be taken into consideration:

  1. Portable Fire Equipments,
  2. Alarms and Evacuation System
  3. Fire Safety Training,
  4. Fire Sprinkler System,
  5. Passive fire products. 


In minimizing risk, the key point is to prevent fire from starting or stop them if they are already spreading. The materials made to make wall, window and door frames may help to slow down or stop the fire from expand to other lots. Make sure the alarm is sensitive enough to identified the fire but not a false-alarm of people cooking with lots of smoke from their cooking pots. Property manager shall be alert whether to change it to better quality but not totally removed it from the properties.

Sembang-sembang Sarjana 3 Mac 2011

Wednesday, March 9, 2011

Bagi memantapkan kaedah pembentangan pelajar-pelajar Sarjana, program Sembang-sembang Sarjana bagi 2011 diteruskan dengan pra-pembentangan oleh Ezhwan Nur Arshad dan Mohd. Firdaus bin Ismail. Program dijalankan pada setiap hari Jumaat dan bermula pada pukul 3.00 petang berjaya memberi pendedahan awal berkenaan kaedah membentang laporan perkembangan projek setiap semester dan sesi VIVA bagi pelajar Tahun Akhir. 


Seterusnya setiap pelajar diberikan kritikan dari segi lenggok bahasa, pengisian dan penyampaian maklumat berkenaan kajian masing-masing. Ezhwan membentangkan penyelidikan berkenaan Kualiti Hidup Masyarakat di Nusajaya dan Firdaus membentangkan berkenaan Kaedah Krisis Komunikasi dalam Pengurusan Acara/Majlis. 

Memandangkan pelajar-pelajar ini berada di dalam semester satu, maka masih awal untuk mereka membuat pembetulan sebelum laporan perkembangan penyelidikan di hantar. Pelajar-pelajar senior bertindak sebagai Fasilitator, memberikan kritikan serta pandangan dalam menambah-baik projek pelajar-pelajar junior. Program Sembang-sembang Sarjana diharapkan dapat memberikan pelajar-pelajar di bawah naungan CEFM agar lebih berani dan yakin serta tidak melakukan kesilapan yang kerap dilakukan oleh penyelidik-penyelidik sebelumnya.
