Fire Extinguishers for Toronto Businesses

Are you in charge of fire safety for your organization? Do you find the Ontario fire code regarding extinguishers, sprinklers, and alarms confusing? There are certain requirements that must be met regarding extinguishers, and if you’re unsure about whether or not your company is in compliance with current regulations, it can be helpful to consult an expert from a company that specializes in fire safety. They will help you choose the correct type and size of extinguishers and place them in the most useful locations.


Fire safety technicians are able to assess your company’s needs and design a custom fire safety strategy that maximizes the safety of your employees and clients. You may find that you have many options, such as retrofitting integrated sprinkler and fire alarm systems that contact EMS automatically. Another helpful addition to many locations is lighting that illuminates evacuation routes should the power fail due to fire. If you are operating a commercial kitchen, you may want to consider a kitchen fire suppression system to contain dangerous grease fires. If your business has a lot of valuable computer equipment or servers, learn about alternatives to sprinkler systems that use gas to suppress fires in these areas.


And don’t forget to ensure that your electrical wiring is up to code.


Partnering with Fire Safety Specialists


Once your systems are set up, you will also want to ensure that your equipment is monitored and maintained on a regular basis. Don’t outsource this job to a non-specialist! Fire safety technicians have the expertise and the tools to do the job properly.


Another important component of fire safety is having a plan in case of emergency. This plan should be clearly articulated and made known to all employees. At least twice a year, your company should perform fire drills, and information about fire procedures should be posted in a prominent common area. Part of this plan should include training about how to use fire extinguishers, which is often neglected.




Finally, have a fire safety expert speak to your organization about fire prevention. By being vigilant and thinking about possible problems, you can avoid damage and injuries caused by fire. You may even want to appoint a team of fire wardens who keep a watchful eye out for hazards such as the following:

  • Improperly stored combustible items such as oily rags
  • Blocked exit doors
  • Equipment with insufficient ventilation, which could overheat
  • Frayed electrical cords, which can short out and cause fires
  • Heating devices placed too close to flammable material such as curtains
  • Matches out where they can be accessed by children
  • Paper clutter, which can become a hazard if allowed to accumulate
  • Smoking near flammables
  • Smoking areas with no place to extinguish cigarettes
  • Unauthorized personnel entering the workplace
  • Appliances left plugged in unnecessarily
Be smart about fire prevention and diligent about keeping fire safety equipment such as fire extinguishers in Toronto in good condition. It will help to protect your business, your employees, your clients, and your reputation.
