Buildings maintained in accordance with the provisions of the Fire Code perform well during fire incidents.
While building owners are responsible for carrying out the provisions of the Fire Code, fire services have a public safety interest in ensuring that buildings are maintained in accordance with the Fire Code.
Inspections of properties must be done, or arranged for, by the municipality when:
- a complaint is received regarding the fire safety of a property
- a request is made to assist a property owner or occupant to comply with the Fire Code and the involvement of the Chief Fire Official is required to ensure the owner remains in compliance with the Ontario Fire Code.
- the fire department is aware of violations in a particular property
