Fire Safety Awareness and Emergency Planning for Residential High/Low Rise Building Owners and Managers
Requirements for high/low rise safety have necessitated the development of a program for building owners and managers to provide greater life, safety and property protection in those buildings which, because of their height and occupant activity, represent unique risks for fire.
Windsor Fire and Rescue Services (WFRS) has recognized this need and has developed a new program for property managers, building owners/managers and others responsible for fire safety within high/low rise buildings.
The first of such seminars is scheduled for Thursday, March 9, 2017 at the City of Windsor Emergency Operations Centre located behind WFRS Headquarters at 65 Elliott Street East with additional dates scheduled as well. The full list of offerings is as follows:
- Thursday, March 9, 2017
- Tuesday, March 14, 2017
- Thursday, April 20, 2017
- Friday, April 28, 2017
The presentations will cover why Ontario Fire Code awareness and emergency response training is mandated and required by the Ontario Fire Code for owners and designated supervisory staff, and why it is strongly encouraged for tenants.
In addition, the importance of the fire safety features and systems in buildings identified below will be discussed:
- Fire separations and closures
- Standpipes & sprinkler systems
- Fire alarm systems
- Fire safety plans
- Fire department and firefighter’s access
- Interior finishes
- Emergency lighting
