Following your review and subsequent approval of the FSP, we will submit two copies of the FSP to the Municipal Fire Services for approval.
Upon approval, we will provide 2 (two) bound copies of the approved FSP and 1 (one) digital copy in Word format to you. Additional costs will apply for extra bound copies.
Fire Safety Plan Review
A Fire Safety Plan is required to be reviewed a minimum of once every 12 months in accordance with NFPA requirements and local Fire Codes which state:
“The fire safety plan shall be reviewed as often as necessary, but at intervals not greater than 12 months, to ensure that it takes account of changes in the use and other characteristics of the building.”
The above provision was extracted from the Ontario Fire Code, (O. Reg. 213/07), as amended. Please note all provincial Fire Codes require a similar compliance.
NFPA 101 Section 4.8 states all Plans must be reviewed in accordance with local Fire Codes. This review shall be no less than annually.
We will review the existing Fire Safety Plan for compliance and ensure the following are accurate within the Plan:
· Supervisory Staff roles and responsibilities
· Fire Alarm sequence of operations
· Building conditions
· Human resources
We will provide 1 (one) revision of the Plan, as necessary, and will submit the Plan to the Fire Department, as required. Additional fees will apply should the Plan be in non-compliance of the Fire Code or the Plan requires re-development.
At the conclusion of the review, we will provide a letter stating the Plan is an accurate reflection of the current Supervisory Staff roles and responsibilities, Sequence of Operations, Building conditions and Human resources. We recommend this letter be inserted at the front of the Plan for immediate review by the Fire Department upon inspection.
