The OFMEM has issued Fire Marshal’s Directive 2015-02 – Report of Fires and Explosions Requiring Investigations. This directive provides direction to Assistants to the Fire Marshal on the reporting of fire incidents in support of the prescribed duties of the Fire Marshal under the FPPA.
The Ontario Fire College (OFC) will be offering challenge exams for Fire Code courses starting in May of 2015.
Candidates from the Municipal Fire Service in Ontario who believe they possess the knowledge and skills may write a challenge exam for the course.
Following an open and public consultation, an independent Review Panel determined on April 23, 2014 that the trade of Sprinkler and Fire Protection Installer should be reclassified as compulsory.
To ease the process of changing the trade’s classification from voluntary to compulsory, the Ontario College of Trades (the College) is taking a two-year implementation approach. During the full two-year period, starting February 2, 2015, the trade will remain voluntary. However, on February 2, 2017 there will be a number of requirements that change in terms of the practise of the trade.
