Building fire safety plans require review at minimum every 12 months to ensure that they take into account any changes in use or building characteristics.
Plans need to include procedures on:
- Sounding the fire alarm
- Notifying the fire department
- Instructing occupants on procedures to be followed when a fire alarm sounds
- Evacuating occupants, including special provision for individuals requiring assistance
- Confining, controlling, and extinguishing the fire
- Description of the training requirements and responsibilities of supervisory staff and other occupants
- Documents and diagrams showing the type, location, and operation of the building fire-emergency systems
- Requirements for fire drills
- Steps to take to control fire hazards within the building
- A building inspection and maintenance information
The Fire Safety Plan Template is to be used to create a Fire Safety Plan. The Alberta Fire Code, Section 2.8 requires the implementation of a Fire Safety Plan in all buildings/occupancy. It is the responsibility of the owner to ensure that the information contained within the Fire Safety Plan is accurate and complete.
