    Hi Andrew,

    I’m aware that the OFMEM is working on some guidance for the fire service on this.  Stay tuned.

    The OFMEM pulled them all from their website many years ago.  Most of them are available on the OMFPOA website.  I just added a few more and will keep adding until we have them all.  If there’s a specific one you require  please let me know.  If anyone has electronic copies of any that are not on the site, please send me a copy and we’ll add to our website.  Thanks  Del

    In Kingston we are provided tvek, coveralls and new fitted bunker gear.  We use a firefighter helmet that is a structural firefighting helmet with affixed safety goggles.

    For respirators we currently have a powered PAPR with soft MSA soft mask with drinking tube.  This prevents PAPR from fogging up and allows a camera to be pulled close to the eye.  We are in the process of moving towards full SCBA.

    Hope this helps.

    In Kingston our Municipal and Private Dry Hydrants are installed to NFPA 1142 and maintained to NFPA 25.  We have some dry hydrants at facilities where there is underground stored water tanks for firefighting (for example hwy 401 rest stops); we require them to be serviced annually like a fire hydrant.  This service is now be offered by Lakeshore Fire Hydrants.  It is important to ensure that the dry hydrant ports match your departments standard drafting equipment for example a 4″ stortz connection.  Hope this helps.

    Hi Jon,

     

    In Kingston we have an old  by-law that prohibits propane BBQ’s on a balcony above grade.  The Propane Storage and Handling Act requires that a propane tank not be within 3 feet of an opening in a building (door, window) and at least 10 feet from any mechanical intake air system (example: window air conditioner).  This requirement eliminates most balconies from having adequate clearance to allow a BBQ.

    Also be aware that TSSA has informed us that the act has been amended to allow propane to be located on rooftops. see article 6.5.3.9. of B149.2-15 for more information on that one.

    Hope this helps.
