Fire Safety (Evacuation) Plans are required for all occupancies throughout North America. We develop Fire Safety (Evacuation) Plans for clients around the world and while our Plans are comprehensive, our fees are very competitive.
Our Plans are in accordance with NFPA 101 requirements and U.S. state and all Canadian Fire Codes
Our Fire Safety (Evacuation) Plans include:
In accordance with current Fire Code requirements, the plan shall include:
1. sounding the fire alarm
2. notifying Municipal Fire Services
3. instructing day and night occupants on procedures to be followed when the fire alarm sounds
4. evacuating all occupants, including special provisions for persons requiring assistance
5. the procedures for use of elevators
6. confining, controlling and extinguishing the fire;
We will provide a draft copy of the FSP for you to review and comment prior to submission to the Municipal Fire Service.
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.
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.
We will review the existing Fire Safety Plan for compliance and ensure the following are accurate within the Plan:
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.
