“Joe, have you had any of your F Orders appealed for this type of building?”
My apologies for the tardy response to your question. I have not had one of my “f” orders appealed. I generally do a great deal of education with the owners to ensure they understand my interpretation of the Ontario Fire Code and or my abilities delegated to me via the FPPA. I also educate them on fire migration and the risk to the tenants, the building(s) and firefighters. I hardly ever have any of my orders appealed. I think it is because what I generally ask for is not unreasonable and makes sense to a layman person. Education and compassion are very powerful tools when performing the role of a fire prevention officer.
