New Regulations for Retirement Home Fire Safety
On January 1, 2014, the Ontario Fire Code was amended (O.Reg.150/13) to improve fire safety in various facilities, including Homes for Special Care, Homes for the Aged, and Buildings with Care Occupancy or Retirement Homes.
Buildings with Care Occupancy or Retirement Homes, Homes for the Aged, and Homes for Special Care with more than ten residents must have their sprinkler systems updated by January 1, 2025.
If you want to get your facility up to regulation before the deadline, don’t hesitate to call us at (905) 602-1850 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
