Portable Fire Extinguishers are essential for controlling a fire before it gets out of control. A partially charged, or neglected extinguisher may not be reliable in a fire situation. All occupancies covered by the Ontario Fire Code require monthly and annual inspections of portable extinguishers. Any dry chemical extinguisher, whether for private or commercial use, must be disassembled, inspected internally and re-built every 5 or 6 years and hydrostatically tested every 12 years. Extinguishers containing other agents are subject to other periodic maintenance.
Fire Alarm Systems
Fire Alarm Systems are required to be maintained in operable condition at all times. As well, fire alarm systems shall be inspected in conformance with ULC-S536 and the Ontario Fire Code. This code requires monthly and annual testing. Records must be kept by the building owner/manager for examination by your insurance company and/or the authority having jurisdiction. Only technicians who have completed the Canadian Fire Alarm Association Technician Education Program, or an equivalent course may perform repairs and inspections.
Sprinkler Systems Automatic Sprinkler Systems (wet and dry) are required to be maintained in operable condition at all times. Maintenance and inspection is required monthly, quarterly and yearly as mandated by the Ontario Fire Code.
