Most buildings require a fire safety plan. It is Ontario law (Ontario Fire Code Division B, Section 2.8).
A fire safety plan helps protect residents from fire. It ensures that safety systems, equipment, and procedures are ready for use. The plan is unique to each building. Plans should be reviewed when there are changes in the use or features of the building.
If your building is larger or complex, you should hire a consultant to help you prepare the fire safety plan.
You will need to send us a fire safety plan, a site plan, and a floor plan. You can send these in two ways:
