Fire Warden and Key First Responder Training Seminar
In addition to the requirement of staff training implemented in the Fire Safety (Evacuation) Plan; training of Supervisory Staff is required under Clause 2.8.2.(2)(c) of the Ontario Fire Code which states “provide for the training of supervisory staff and the instruction of other occupants in their responsibilities for fire safety”
As such, we will provide a one hour training seminar for Fire Wardens and key response personal and will include seminar handouts.
The training seminar will include a review of:
The Fire Safety Plan;
Building’s life safety system features;
The Fire Warden and key response personal and their emergency response procedures and duties.
We will include a digital copy of the presentation in PowerPoint format.
Fire Drill Test Scripts
To mitigate supervisory staff confusion and operational inconsistencies, RiSK will develop a step by step fire drill and monthly test script. The script will be building specific to detail the operator’s procedures and the system’s subsequent events.
This will enable supervisory staff to document site observations in context with the prescribed operator activities.
A companion check sheet tailored for the operator and the supervisory staff can be developed to document observations in context with the defined event matrix. In addition, all future operator training with respect to fire drills and monthly tests can be provided via a single uniform document.
RiSK will develop a series of 3 Fire Drill scenarios tailored to the client’s specific building and occupancy configuration. The scenarios will encompass unique aspects of the building while incorporating the functions of the fire alarm system and building operator’s procedures as detailed in the approved Fire Safety Plan.
The objective of the Scenarios is to test the response of the building operator, the function of the fire alarm system and the procedures in the Fire Safety Plan during an emergency event.
Fire Extinguisher Training
RiSK is committed to assisting you with reducing your risk of loss due to a fire. This two-part Fire Extinguisher Training program combines both theory and practical hands-on demonstration and is designed for Office, Industrial and Construction sectors.
The safe operation of portable fire extinguishers is your first line of defense in protecting your people and property in the event of a fire. The objective of our Fire Extinguisher Training is to inform, demonstrate and provide confidence to employees in the safe and effective use of fire extinguishers in the workplace. Fires start small and may be extinguished by well-trained, knowledgeable employees using the proper equipment.
This portion of the program takes approximately 30 minutes of indoor instruction.
Using specialized training equipment we simulate real fire situations for practice in extinguishing A, B and C type fires.
Fire Code Compliance Assessment
The purchasing or acquisition of a property can be a daunting task. In many cases, a Fire Code compliance assessment must be performed as part of the condition of sale or take-over.
In other cases, owners request this service to inform them of deficiencies to their facility that may impact occupant and employee safety. This report is helpful when owners are considering a change to their insurance requirements.
RiSK will perform a field review of your facility and note any Fire Code deficiencies. An analysis will be performed and a detailed report issued to you along with solutions that may be used to achieve compliance.
We look forward to hearing from you with your life safety request and working with you to ensure your facility is as safe as possible.
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.
