As a result of an amendment to the Ontario Fire Code in December 2005, every home in Ontario is now required to have working smoke alarms on every storey. This is in addition to the existing requirement of having smoke alarms outside all sleeping areas. The new requirement takes effect on March 1, 2006. For more information about the Fire Code amendment, please refer to Fire Marshal’s Communiqué 2005-35, by clicking the link below. At the bottom of the Communiqué there is a Q&A's section that is very informative to residents.
More information coming soon.
