The diesel pump room sign is a fire and safety signage that indicates where the diesel pumps are located. Therefore it allows fire officers to know where to locate it incase of an emergency.
A diesel fire pump should be held in its own enclosure. Because of the stored fuel and batteries used to provide a backup power source. The enclosure is significantly larger than is usually required for an electric fire pump. Because of the large number of mechanical components, diesel fire pumps are more costly to build and maintain.
Diesel pump room sign is required to be installed on commercial, retail and residential developments in accordance. Because this statutory signage indicates fire safety rules for both retail and residential developments and in accordance with the Building Code of Australia (BCA).
