The Ontario Fire Code

The Ontario Fire Code requires all homes to have properly maintained and operating smoke alarms between each sleeping area and the remainder of the building at all times. It is recommended that homeowners install one smoke alarm on every level of their home and outside all sleeping areas. For maximum protection, install one in every room. Fewer deaths occur in home fires where a smoke alarm is present and working. In 1999, Ontario recorded its lowest fire death rate ever - attributed to enhanced building and fire codes, greater public awareness and the use of home smoke alarms.

To be in service of your community is one of the greatest sacrifices a person can make. Laurentian Hills is proud to boast we have one of the best volunteer fire departments in the province. This group of dedicated people train hard to provide not only fire protection but also educate our residents in all matters of public safety. Not only do they protect our families, the fire department and the Laurentian Hills Fire Association work hard to promote the Town through fund raising events and are always helping out with all Town activities like the winter carnival, sports and recreation events and public awareness.
