Fire Safety Plans

A Fire Safety Plan helps to ensure effective utilization of fire safety systems, equipment, and procedures in a building to protect people from fire.

The Ontario Fire Code O. Reg 213/07 as amended requires a Fire Safety Plan (Division B Section 2.8) for many properties and businesses. The Ontario Fire Code requires every Fire Safety Plan to be reviewed and approved by the Chief Fire Official of your local Fire Department. The plan is required to be reviewed annually by the building owner and any changes made be submitted to the North Grenville Fire Service.

For a list of when a Fire Safety Plan is required, please review Ontario Fire Code O. Reg 213/07 as amended Division B Article
