Reducing Stove Top Fires To gain further insight into the nature of stovetop fires, the
OFM developed the Ontario Stovetop Fire Survey. This survey was
distributed to fire departments to gather information on all stovetop
fires they attended within a one-year period. This report provides
an analysis of the survey results and key findings.
Fire Drills This guideline was developed to assist persons
to plan, document, coordinate, conduct and monitor fire drills in
buildings and occupancies regulated by Section 2.8, Emergency Planning,
of the Ontario Fire Code. The guideline also provides guidance about
analyzing and documenting fire drills to achieve compliance with the
Ontario Fire Code.
Issuing Orders to Close Buildings/Units Due to Fire Safety
Issues This guideline details the process by which a
fire official can issue orders to address issues involving an immediate

Sample Fire Safety Plan The Ontario Fire Code requires the creation and implementation
of a fire safety plan for most buildings and occupancies. A fire safety
plan helps to ensure effective utilization of fire safety systems,
equipment and procedures in a building to protect people from fire. The
plan should be customized to mirror the resources of each individual
building or complex of buildings. Click here to view a template fire safety plan.
