The National Fire Code Alberta Edition requires a Fire Safety Plan for the following:
- Every building containing an assembly, care, treatment or detention occupancy.
- Every building with a fire alarm system.
- Demolition and construction sites.
- Storage areas for combustible products and dangerous goods.
- Areas where flammable liquids or combustible liquids are stored or handled.
- Areas where hazardous processes or operations occur.
The Fire Safety Plan helps ensure effective use of life safety features in a building to protect people from fire. The required plan should be designed to meet the resources of each building or complex of buildings. It is the owner's responsibility to ensure that the information in the fire safety plan is accurate and complete.
Supervisory staff shall be trained in the fire emergency procedures described in the plan and provide a copy before they are given any responsibility for fire safety.
The plan shall be reviewed at intervals no greater than 12 months to ensure that it takes account of changes in the building's use and other characteristics.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact Beaumont Fire Service at 780-929-6185.
