The OMFPOA is sharing the following communication at the request of the OAFC Fire Prevention Public Education Committee……..


Dear Deputy Chief Chad Brown,

As the trusted leader when it comes to fire safety in Ontario, the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services has requested that the Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs (OAFC), through our Fire Prevention Public Education Committee, help reduce red tape and improve efficiencies in government.  One proposal for reducing red tape and court time is by adding additional Part 1 Offences (tickets) to the Provincial Offences Act.

The OAFC Fire Prevention and Public Education Committee has drafted a very short survey which we are asking all fire chiefs to complete.  It will take less than 5 minutes, and will help us determine if additional “tickets” would benefit municipal fire services, with the intention to be more responsive to fire service’s needs.  Your input is crucial in the committees’ work to determine next steps.

The survey can be found on our website at:

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the OAFC office at 905-426-9865.

Thank you for taking the time to complete the survey.
