Our Fire Prevention Division works extremely hard to ensure fire loss is kept to a minimum, and the citizens of Brockville have an extended knowledge on fire safety and fire prevention. The Fire Prevention Division has three mandates.
Public education is an extremely important mandate of the Fire Prevention Division. The Brockville Fire Prevention Division uses a variety of community programs to better educate the public and reduce fire lose.
Fire cause determination is another mandate of the Fire Prevention Division. Determining how a fire started, who started it and so on helps us to develop and implement educational programs to prevent further fires of the same nature. If the fire was determined to be of other than an accidental nature the Fire Prevention Division assists investigators from Office of the Fire Marshal and the Police Department in the criminal investigation of the fire.
Enforcing the code is the final mandate of the Fire Prevention Division. The Brockville Fire Prevention Division has a responsibility to enforce the requirements of the Ontario Fire Code. The Fire Protection and Prevention Act and relevant sections of the Ontario Building Code and other applicable and referenced standards to ensure a minimum level of Life Safety is maintained in the various occupancies of the city. Inspections are done as requested by legal firms, insurance and mortgage agents as well as on a regular basis and upon complaint.
