Fire Safety Plan

The Fire Safety Plan ensures the effective use of life safety features in a building, to protect people from fire. A Fire Safety Plan should be designed to suit the resources of each individual building or complex. Below is a guideline to assist you in creating your Fire Safety Plan.

Fire Safety Plan Guideline

Emergency Planning for certain buildings is mandated by the Ontario Fire Code. The requirement applies 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

If you are unsure whether your business or building requires a Fire Safety Plan or if you have any questions regarding Fire Safety Plans please contact the Milton Fire Department Fire Prevention Division.
