Building owners must comply with Fire Code

Posted On Friday March 22, 2019

New Tecumseth Fire Rescue would like to remind building owners that they have a mandated responsibility for the safety of their tenants and must comply with the Ontario Fire Code. 

On March 20, 2019, the owner of an Alliston building and the property management company that the owner had hired to maintain the property plead guilty in Provincial Offences Court to two charges laid under the Ontario Fire Code. 

The court imposed fines of $1,000 per charge which were related to an exit door being obstructed and means of a way out (exit pathway) not being maintained. 

If owners or tenants have questions about complying with the Ontario Fire Code, please call New Tecumseth Fire Rescue at 705-435-3900 or email
