OFM - Fire Safety Inspections & Enforcement Seminar
The Office of the Fire Marshal has been working extensively on a tool for fire departments to assist with options for fire safety inspections and enforcement of the Ontario Fire Code.
There have been presentations on this issue at the last OAFC Midterm meeting and AMES. The OAFC Fire Prevention Committee has been engaged with the OFM on the development of this technical guideline and reviewed the training program which is associated with the document. We are pleased to have been able to participate in this project and are supportive of both the technical Guideline and training program.
Department representatives and those involved with Ontario Fire Code enforcement are encouraged to attend one of the seminars.
The following dates have been established for the training seminars at the Ontario Fire College;
