Training Overview:

The Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management Ontario have developed a one-day training session in conjunction with the Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs 2013 Midterm Meeting in Niagara Falls. Throughout the day you will be provided with in-depth training on what you need to know regarding implementing the mandatory changes to care facilities in your municipality. In addition, you will be trained on how to apply the Integrated Risk Management (IRM) tool in your department. 
The first half of the training will cover what you need to know in regards to changes to care facilities.  In addition, the training will address the changes to the Ontario Fire Code and Ontario Building Code, recommendations from the Muskoka Heights Inquest and subsequent recommendations from the TAC which also identified a number of additional requirements that will impact all municipal fire departments. The requirements for vulnerable occupancies in your municipality that will be reviewed during the training include:
  • Conduct an annual fire safety inspection
  • Attend and validate a fire safety drill annually
  • Collect and submit information on the care facilities to the Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management for the Vulnerable Occupancy Registry
  • Training for department personnel.
This implementation training will provide you with the information you need regarding the changes that come in to effect on January 1, 2014.
The afternoon session will consist of a presentation on the Integrated Risk Management Tool.  Topics covered during the session will include:
  • How the IRM tool works;
  • Uses for the tool;
  • Future training in IRM and;
  • Where do we go from here.
The information provided will assist fire chiefs in making consistent, accurate and informed decisions on community-based risks and will assist in identifying and recommending appropriate risk-management strategies.
