Fire Safety Plan

The Fire Safety Plan ensures the effective use of life safety features in a building, to protect people from fire. The required Fire Safety Plan should be designed to suit the resources of each individual building or complex.

The Milton Fire Department has created a Fire Safety Plan Guide to assist owners and managers of buildings to develop and implement effective Fire Safety Plans for their buildings.

Emergency Planning is mandated by the Ontario Fire Code and the requirements within apply to, but not limited to, the following buildings containing any of the following:

  • Assembly occupancy or care or detention occupancy
  • Residential occupancy where the occupant load exceeds 10
  • Business and personal services occupancy where the occupant load exceeds 300
  • Mercantile occupancy where the occupant load exceeds 300
  • High hazard industrial occupancy where the occupant load exceeds 25
  • Medium hazard industrial occupancy where the occupant load exceeds 100
  • Low hazard industrial occupancy where the occupant load exceeds 300
