The Ontario Fire Code, Div. B, Section 2.8 provides for the required preparation, approval, and implementation of a fire safety plan for most buildings and occupancies.
An approved fire safety plan helps to ensure for the effective utilization of fire safety systems, equipment and procedures in a building, to protect people from fire. These plans should be customized to mirror the resources of each individual building, or complex of buildings, and are to be reviewed as often as necessary, but at intervals not greater than 12 months to ensure they take into account changes in the use and other characteristics of the building.
There are many qualified companies who can prepare a Fire Safety Plan for you.
In Mississauga, an approved Fire Safety Plan is to be provided on site in a security box accessible to responding fire crews, and provided in conformance with our Municipal Security Box Bylaw 289-97.
