Fire Safety Plan

Fire Safety Plans

Fire Safety Plans are required, under the fire code, based on building use or occupancy types. Under the Ontario Fire Code (section 2.8.1), a Fire Safety Plan is required for buildings containing:

  • Assembly occupancy or care or detention occupancy,
  • Residential occupancy where the occupant load exceeds 10,
  • Business and personal services occupancy where the occupant load exceeds 300,
  • Mercantile occupancy where the occupant load exceeds 300,
  • High hazard industrial occupancy where the occupant load exceeds 25,
  • Medium hazard industrial occupancy where the occupant load exceeds 100,
  • Low hazard industrial occupancy where the occupant load exceeds 300
  • Buildings containing 4 storeys or more, including storeys below grade

Provisions are not limited to above listed requirements. For a complete list, refer to the Ontario Fire Code, Section 2.8.1.

Failure to have a Fire Safety Plan for buildings which fit the above fire code types can result in being in violation with the Ontario Fire Code.

 

Fire Evacuation Plans

Evacuation plans are a great way to plan a safe escape from the buildings.
