This safety training teaches fire and emergency preparedness and how to properly evacuate a building safely. Staff and occupants must be familiar with your building’s safety features, fire alarms detection and suppression equipment and how you can use them to save lives and property.

Have you been meeting the standard as laid out in the Ontario Fire Code? Did you know that most fire departments do not conduct fire drills for the private industry?
