Fire Safety Plan

 

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 implementation of the Fire Safety Plan helps to ensure effective utilization of life safety features in a building to protect people from fire. The required Fire Safety Plan should be designed to suit the resources of each individual building or complex of buildings. It is the responsibility of the owner to ensure that the information contained within the fire safety plan is accurate and complete.

Supervisory staff shall be trained in the fire emergency procedures described in the Fire Safety Plan and proved a copy before they are given any responsibility for fire safety.

The Fire Safety Plan shall be reviewed at intervals not greater than 12 months to ensure that it takes account of changes in the use and other characteristics of the building.
