The Ontario Fire College is revamping the NFPA 1031-I course into a blended version.
As part of that process the team working on the course is developing several practical exercises. In the online portion of the course there will be at least two “simulated” inspection type case study assignments. To improve the student experience, they are requesting assistance from our stakeholders.
Both compliant and non-compliant photos are welcome. If you have before and after photos (non-compliance vs compliance) that would be very beneficial to the students in the course.
If any department has non-identifiable photos of any of the topics below that they are willing to share with the team for possible use in the course, it would be appreciated. Credit will be given to the fire department for any photos received.
Please send photos, or any questions about the requested photos to Fire College Instructor Robert King (
