July 2015; The Ontario Fire Code (O.Reg. 213/07), as amended, has been revised for 2015.
The revisions in the revised Code include the requirements of Smoke and Carbon Monoxide alarms within residential occupancies and the addition of a substantial section to reflect Long Term Care Facilities.
These changes have a direct impact on your Fire Safety Plan, its references and your maintenance procedures section regardless of occupancy. Revising only the Human Resources section of your Plan is not sufficient enough for compliancy.
Your Fire Safety Plan must be reviewed, and revised annually according to Div. B, Sentence 220.127.116.11.(4). Fire Safety Plans developed and approved prior to 2015 must be revised to include the new requirements and maintenance procedure references for it to remain compliant.
Failure to comply with the Ontario Fire Code may result in fines up to $100,000.
