INSPECTION AND ENFORCEMENT
When a building is constructed it must be built to the standards specified by the Ontario Building Code. Once a building is issued an occupancy permit, the Ontario Fire Code takes effect. The owner of a building is responsible to ensure compliance with the Ontario Fire Code. Under the Fire Prevention and Protection Act municipalities are responsible for enforcing the Ontario Fire Code within their boundaries.
The Bonnechere Valley Fire Department conducts inspections and enforces compliance with the Ontario Fire Code. Our inspection practices include:
- Complaint inspections
- Request inspections
- Routine inspections per fire prevention policy
- Issuance of Fire Inspection Orders
- Enforcement of Ontario Fire Code
- Enforcement of municipal by-law
The Bonnechere Valley Fire Department also participates in fire investigations to determine fire cause and origin. Emergency incidents are reported to the Office of the Fire Marshal. Some fire incidents may require further investigation by the Office of the Fire Marshal or Ontario Provincial Police. The Office of the Fire Marshal investigations branch must be notified for suspicious fires, fires that result in loss of life, explosions and large loss fires.
